DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — William Abramson, an attorney once ordered to stop practicing law, and then who later agreed to stop practicing law until at least 2025, was arrested by Delray Beach Police Sunday night. He claims to be currently teach at Boca Raton Middle School, although that claim couldn’t be verified early Tuesday.

Abramson is charged with one count of DUI and two counts of “hit and run,” one for causing bodily injury and another for causing property damage. He was ultimately arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail around 10 p.m. He was released on $3,000 bond just before 3:30 Tuesday morning.

Once a high-profile attorney in Palm Beach County, Abramson lost his ability to practice law in what he called a series of politically motivated incidents and events. After being elected a judge in 2008, Abramson’s law license was suspended due to a courtroom outburst years earlier. With the license reinstated, he later ran for Public Defender in Palm Beach County but lost. He voluntarily relinquished his license in 2019 until at least 2025 when he faced additional complaints that could have led to permanent disbarment.

Abramson later sued Florida Governor Ron DeSantis when early COVID restrictions, he claimed, prohibited him from making money as a substitute teacher in the Palm Beach County School District, then as a server at an area restaurant. He told police that he currently teaches at Boca Raton Middle School.

The alleged crash and DUI incident occurred Sunday in the area of Southeast 6th Avenue and SE 10th Street in Delray Beach. Police arriving say they found Abramson’s black Volkswagen in a crash with a white Toyota Camry. The driver of the VW — Abramson — was allegedly found walking away from the scene of the crash. Police, according to the report, stopped him, questioned him, and arrested him. He later provided breath samples registering .279 and .274 — both more than three times the legal limit of .08.
