Judge fac­ing more charges from lat­est ar­rest

Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

COR­PUS CHRISTI, Texas—A state dis­trict judge who was ear­lier cleared in a South Texas road-rage in­ci­dent has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated and un­law­fully car­ry­ing a weapon.

Cor­pus Christi po­lice say Judge Guy Wil­liams was taken into cus­tody by of­fi­cers who re­sponded to a dis­tur­bance call Thurs­day.

Wil­liams bonded out Fri­day from the Nue­ces (nyoo-AY'suhs) County jail.

The 68-year-old Wil­liams was ac­quit­ted on an as­sault charge last year fol­low­ing an en­counter with an­other motorist.

He faces un­re­lated charges filed in May of pub­lic in­tox­i­ca­tion and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

He was sus­pended from the bench last year by the State Com­mis­sion on Ju­di­cial Con­duct but was later re­in­stated.

Wil­liams did not seek re-elec­tion and will be re­placed in Jan­uary when a newly elected ju­rist takes of­fice.
