DAVENPORT (AP)--A hearing date has been set for next month for a retired Muscatine County judge who was arrested for a third time on a drunken driving charge.
According to Iowa State Patrol officials, James Weaver, of Blue Grass, was arrested Saturday afternoon in Scott County on charges of operating while intoxicated, speeding, seat belt violation and disobeying a traffic-control device.
Officials say when the 56-year-old arrived at the jail his blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.
Weaver posted $5,900 bond. He is scheduled to be in court for an initial appearance on April 8.
He was first arrested for drunken driving in November 2002, then again in November 2004. He pleaded guilty both times.
