Drunk Federal Judge Arrested In Drag
Poor Judge Robert Somma's night of harmless dressup fun came to an abrupt and embarrassing end when he got arrested for drunk driving. Last week the Boston-based judge's wife was out of town, so he put on his most glamorous cocktail dress, slipped on some fishnets and a pair of heels, grabbed his purse, and drove up to New Hampshire for an alleged "two gin and tonics." Several hours later he rear-ended a pickup with his Mercedes sedan and the rest is humiliating history.
Police said he "had a difficult time locating his license in his purse," couldn't stand up straight, and blew an impressive .12 on the breath test at the police station. He has since pled no contest to a first-offense misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge.
The First Circuit Court bankruptcy judge was appointed in 2004, and according to a spokesperson has "no history of problems."
