Michigan Judge Suspended for Public Drunkenness at Boat Launch

A judge from Ypsilanti, Michigan has been suspended for 90 days by a state disciplinary board for towing a boat and a trailer at a public boat launch while severely intoxicated. District Judge Kirk Tabbey accepted the penalty handed down by the board. The recommendation now goes on to the state’s Supreme Court. Tabbey had been fined on October 16th after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of drunken driving.

According to official reports, police stopped Judge Tabbey on September 17th for suspicion of DUI and found that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.17 percent, which is more than twice the legal safe driving limit of 0.08 percent. Under Michigan law, a BAC level that is twice over the legal limit is considered ‘super drunk’.
