Oh wait, driving with suspended license, no registration, no receipt of registration, and no insurance????? HAVE WHAT INFORMATION????? That looks to me like that's ALL the information we need to know. There is no excuse for him to be driving without license to start with much less no insurance, reg. plates, etc. I have driver's license, and I pay for insurance. I also have to go pay $300 this week for new registration tags....so he should be required to have all this too. Who cares if he is a well "respected" man to London? The rules apply to ALL of us....not just the "general" population of Laurel County. He needed taken to jail and he needs to be treated just like one of the "under" class folks! POLITICS......that's what London is all about!!
Bravo to the officer that arrested him!! At least that is one that done his job!!

I'm sure it wasn't just one dui then, because I know of people who have had 2 or 3 of them before the judge revokes their license.

Why does he think he doesn't have to abide by the law? How is he going to help run this city when he can't even control his own business???? Please someone answer that one for me!

everyone on the ciy council are liers!! Judd may not have been sitting on the council at the time but they ALL sat and lied to a group of children and their parents and promised a skatepark to them. Everyone of them will get what they deserve and will be found out one by one, this is the beginning. What goes around....comes around.
Pathetic

It's pathetic, according to the Times Tribune, Judd wanted the cops to leave his Mitsubishi Eclipse parked at Wal Mart DC where he got pulled over at I guess. He was taken to jail.

Why arent these peoples records checked out before they are even sworn into an office. Makes you wander if it wasnt already known. Just proves to you how london is. Yes he does need to loose his position on the council. What do we want people like that making decisions for our town.

I personally do not know him, but I am related to his wife. I had not heard anything bad about him until now. From what I have heard, he was always a well respected man in Laurel County. Him and his family. I just ask that you concider this. How would you feel if your family, or your child got on topix and saw your name being bashed. How would it make you feel to know that the people that you love might lose respect for you?

Like I said before, it's who you know. You defend him cause your related to who he is married to. If that were me, a big old nobody, then you'd be right on here bashing me with everyone else. Why would "bashing" him on topix cause the ones he loves to lose respect for him? Topix won't cause anyone to lose respect for him. His actions will. You want respect you have to earn it (or in London, you can buy it) so I have no respect for anyone that holds positions in the big town of London that can't follow the rules themselves. London is one sided, it always has been and always will be. Your either in or your out and if your in then you can do whatever you want and get away with it. On the other hand, if your out then you pay the price. I mean come on, you can't even get a job in London unless you know somebody.

A pretrial conference of Feb. 10 has been scheduled in Laurel County District Court for the London City Councilman arrested last week on multiple traffic violations.

According to the arrest citation, Judd Weaver, 40, of London, was stopped by Kentucky State Police Division of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer Greg Reams on Kentucky 80 West just before 6 p.m. Thursday for speeding. Documents state Weaver was traveling 75 mph in a 55 mph zone.

Along with speeding 20 mph over the limit, Weaver was also charged with driving on a suspended driverís license, no registration plate, failing to produce a registration receipt and failure to produce proof of insurance.

The citation states Weaver requested his Mitsubishi Eclipse be left at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center in London following his arrest.(HIS CAR SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOWED,THEN HE WOULD HAVE TO GET INS.AND LISN.BEFORE THE TOWING COMPANY WOULD LET HIM HAVE IT BACK)

Weaver was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center, but was released after posting a $1,000 bond.

When contacted Monday for comment on the charges, Weaver said he would send a response. As of press time, the response was not received.
