BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Broward County Circuit Judge Cynthia Imperato was stopped by Boca Raton Police and arrested for DUI in the 2400 block of West Palmetto Park Road after a caller reported an erratic driver weaving through traffic. An officer later saw the car matching the caller's description.
According to the arrest report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Imperato refused to comply with an officer's instructions to exit her vehicle as the officer initiated a DUI investigation — only saying she was calling her lawyer.
After several requests, the officer removed the cell phone from her hand and physically removed the judge from her car, a white Mercedes.
Incredibly, the judge refused to provide a breath sample. The officers on scene read her the implied consent law and placed her under arrest. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and released on her own recognizance several hours later.
