A San Mateo County judge was arrested on U.S. 101 in Redwood City during Memorial Day Weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence, police said June 9.
Officers determined he was driving under the influence of alcohol and arrested him. He was taken to the First Chance Sobering Station in Burlingame, where he was cited and released, according to Hart.
Hart declined to say why officers pulled Scott over, deferring additional questions about the case to the District Attorney's Office.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe declined to comment on the details of the case but said prosecutors are reviewing the case submitted by Redwood City police.
He said his office hopes to make a decision this week about whether charges will be filed against Scott.
The judge is scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 5 in the same Redwood City courthouse where he serves.
He was appointed as a San Mateo County Judge in 2003 and is serving a six-year term set to expire in 2017.
