The brother of a suspended Washtenaw County judge had a tube sock filled with an ounce of marijuana with him when the two men were arrested in September, according to a police report.
Judge Kirk Tabbey, 58, who is serving a 90-day suspension after a drunken-driving conviction stemming from the incident, says he did not know his brother, Dr. Ross Tabbey, 60, had any drugs on him the day the two men were arrested after a day of boating on a lake in northern Michigan.
The judge quickly pleaded guilty and agreed to a suspension. His brother, an emergency room doctor at the Detroit Medical Center, is still facing a drug charge in Antrim County, records show.
"No, I did not know he had pot on him," the judge told The Ann Arbor News. "I was shocked to hear that he had it."
TPL: OUTGOING ANTRIM JUDGE MICHAEL HALEY (WHO ILLEGALLY EVICTED ME) ONCE AGAIN PROVES OUR POINT THAT THERE ARE SPECIAL RULES FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE. THE AVERAGE CITIZEN WOULD STILL BE SITTING IN THE ANTRIM COUNTY JAIL.
