Democrat Judge Arrested in Atlanta After Assaulting Police Officer in Nightclub

According to records from Fulton County Jail, a Douglas County judge was arrested early Thursday morning at a nightclub in Atlanta.

Christina Peterson, a Douglas County judge, has been charged with simple battery against a police officer at the Red Martini Restaurant and Lounge on Peachtree Street.

As reported by WSB-TV:

A police report said an off-duty Atlanta police officer was working at the bar when he saw a woman who was crying.

While the officer tried to speak with the woman, he was struck on the head by Peterson, according to an arrest report. It is unclear whether Peterson knew the woman who was crying.

Details from a police report reveal that an off-duty Atlanta police officer, trying to aid a distressed woman, was struck violently on the head by Judge Peterson.

The incident has sparked serious concerns about the judge’s behavior and underscores growing concerns about respect for law enforcement among public officials.

The link between Peterson and the “distressed woman” remains unclear.

Peterson did not identify herself and appeared to be under the influence, according to the arrest report.

 

Channel 2 Action News called Peterson’s office and was told that she was not in for work on Thursday.

As of Thursday afternoon, Petersen was released from jail.
