No charges for Macon judge who tested over limit
By The Associated Press
MACON, Ga.(AP)-- A Macon judge who registered over the limit for alcohol during a roadside breath test will not face criminal charges.
Bibb County sheriff's deputies allowed Superior Court Judge Howard Simms to drive home Sept. 22 after a breath test showed he was just over the legal limit.
A report says that police didn't write a report or perform additional tests.
Bibb County Solicitor Otis Scarbary said he and another prosecutor met with police to discuss the case. But he said there are no reports or statements. Sheriff Jerry Modena said additional reports and tests might have helped build a case.
Two deputies were reprimanded and suspended after the incident. Simms said in an earlier statement that he was seeking treatment for an alcohol addiction.

treatment for an alcohol addiction.
Isn't that just another word for a drunk?

He's a player. He'll wind up being CHIEF Superior Court Judge. Will be interesting to see how the Judicial Qualifications Commission sees this. Maybe another early retirement with benefits.
