Judge resigns after allegedly drink driving second time around
Just goes to show that jobs are at risk when people drink and drive, especially if you are a judge. Just why are these people foolish enough to take such risks, and risk other people being killed because of their stupidity?
Granted some jobs are more stressful than others, perhaps those involved in the law should take a stress management course. Some corporations I know even have a regular masseuse (a professional one) who comes in the lunch hour.
Perhaps all courts should have a gym.
"His Honour Bruce Macmillan, 63, was held in Toxteth, Liverpool, on Thursday last week for allegedly being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle.
The judge, who sits at Liverpool's Crown Court, was already due to appear before magistrates charged with drink-driving.
He was first arrested on August 27 after police spotted him driving erratically in his Vauxhall Signum on the M6 in Lancashire. The Ministry of Justice said he had resigned as a circuit judge with immediate effect.
By stepping down he loses his £128,000-a-year salary, but avoids the shame of being disrobed by the Lord Chief Justice and Lord Chancellor."
