According to 2 witnesses, the arrest of the probate judge in Douglas County was unjustified

Early Thursday morning, an Atlanta police officer was allegedly punched by a local probate judge during a scuffle at a Buckhead bar. The incident resulted in the judge’s arrest.

During an interview with Channel 2, two witnesses affirmed that the judge did not commit any wrongdoing, as reported by Tom Jones.

According to witnesses, early this morning at the Red Martini Bar, Douglas County Probate Judge Christina Peterson accidentally struck the officer.

According to Channel 2 Action News, witnesses reported that Peterson was attempting to protect one of them from a brutal assault.

Channel 2 was told by Madison Shannon Kelly that she was becoming emotional as she did not wish to witness her getting into trouble.

According to her, the judge played the role of a mediator and helped in resolving the conflict, hence she believes that he should not be charged with any wrongdoing.

Peterson is being charged with simple battery against a police officer and felony obstruction of an officer.

According to authorities, Peterson punched the officer with a closed fist while the officer was investigating a dispute between two groups at the Red Martini Bar in Buckhead at around 3 a.m. on Thursday.

According to Alexandria Love, the conflict arose when a couple accused her of cutting the line at the food truck, an allegation she vehemently refutes.

According to Love, the man who accused her of cutting in began to physically attack her. She explained that during the struggle, the judge unintentionally hit the officer involved in the altercation.

According to Love, the judge was her savior.

Love credited that individual as the sole helper, stating, “That’s the only person that helped.”

According to the women, the judge expressed his gratitude towards them for posting the truth on their social media accounts.

Peterson’s attorney was contacted by Channel 2 Action News, but no response has been received yet.

Peterson may have lost her election, but she is not backing down. She has filed a lawsuit challenging the residency of her opponent as well as the judge who is overseeing the case.
