Harrison Town, NY.– A suburban New York judge was arrested and charged with a DWI after allegedly hitting another car and trying to convince the authorities to let him go because of his career position.

After rear-ending another car in midtown, Harrison Town Justice Marc Lust told police that he had three drinks at a Christmas party, and that he would “take care of this” if they let him go.

Police said that Lust’s words were slurred and he was unsteady.

The judge’s lawyer claims Lust did not try to use his judgeship to get himself out of the Driving While Intoxicated.

Lust is a part-time justice who was elected in 1999.
