Dash cam video has been released of an impaired New York state judge refusing to exit his vehicle during a DUI traffic stop, leading to him being tased and arrested.
Police responded to a call about an erratic driver on the Saw Mill River Parkway around midnight and caught up with the vehicle after it exited the highway.
The driver was Bedford Town Justice Erik Jacobsen, 54. According to authorities, he had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.
When officers asked Jacobsen to step out of the car, he refused and a struggle ensued. After a warning, officers eventually tased Jacobsen and removed him from the vehicle. He continued to resist arrest until one of the officers delivered multiple compliance strikes, after which, he finally submitted.
Jacobsen has since been removed from office.
