Seems to be alot of High profile people getting arrested. Strange that we now have the Govt arresting and targeting Govt employees. I for one think the police DUI check points are just harrasment of taxpayers and an excuse to search without any cause. They did that stuff in Germany during the 30s and 40s

It just amazes me that all of these circus clowns are sitting within all these high places and they are the biggest offenders??? I mean what a stupid idiot!!!! Duh...the police know right away someone who makes a uturn that they are guilty of something..these people actually think because they hold high positions that they can get away with it. I'm happy that these jackasses are getting caught they are the worst offenders in my book!!! "And the men who hold high places" ha what a joke!!!! they should be ashamed of themselves!!!! Go back and put your red noses on you circus clowns!!!

How can the cop smell a strong odor of alcohol and he only blows a .07? He'll beat an "ai" rap very easily. My guess is he was a lot drunker than that. I agree these checkpoints are harassment. New York has become a police state, no doubt about it. Cops are everywhere, doing everything except "cleaning up the streets"

I think that he should face a stiff penalty.....He should know better and he is mis-using his judicial. He should be made and example of, So now its up to this Green County Judge to do the correct thing. Because Judge Maney was trying to get away from the police.... Shame on Him

I sincerely think that the test was delayed and green Island police gave him favoritism because of his Judicial power. I hope the green island Judge will Practice and implement also charge Maney for fleaing from Police..... Dont let him off Easy....This was a slap in the face to every officer risking there lives trying to do there job of maintaining order in there respected towns and city even our State Troopers.... Clearly Judge Maney has no regard for any Law or Laws , This Must stop Now...Tax dollars at work

Judge Maney is not going anyhere. He will do his time on the bench for another year at Albany County Family Court, and maybe land a cushy job somewhere where it is nice. I wish him the best. He is atleast loved by me.

I'm sure he will not get the same punishment that you or I would get!!!!! I'll be surprised if we ever hear anything further about it. I went through a sobriety check point in Guilderland on Thursday I passed oh yeah I was coming home from working the ER all night putting people back together that are fictims of DWAI!!!!! Throw the book at him he is no different than you or I.
