Judge Arrested For Drunken-Driving


A Scioto County judge was arrested on Saturday after police said he was driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.22.

William Marshall was driving northbound on state Route 140 near the Jackson/Scioto County line at about 3 p.m. on Saturday, when Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers said that he lost control and went off the right side of the road.

Marshall’s 2005 Toyota Prius ended up in an embankment and overturned.

Officers said that they noticed a smell of alcohol and conducted a field sobriety test.

Marshall, who has served as a judge for at least 17 years, was found to have a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit, OSP officials said.

The judge was arrested for OVI and failure to control his vehicle, according to troopers.

Marshall was released and is slated to appear in court on Jan. 17.
