Judge Arrested on DUI Charges
MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) — A southwest Idaho district court judge has been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence. The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that 3rd District Court Judge Renae Hoff was taken into custody early Saturday morning in Meridian. Meridian Deputy Police Chief Tracy Basterrechea says an officer pulled the 61-year-old Hoff over after she failed to “maintain the lane of travel.” After a field sobriety test Hoff was arrested and taken to the Meridian Police Department where she took a breath alcohol test and blew over the legal limit of .08. Police declined to say how much over. Hoff later on Saturday morning was released from the Ada County Jail.
