Cook County Judge Sheila McGinnis was charged with drunk driving by police in suburban Tinley Park.

The 47-year-old judge was arrested after her Chevy Trailblazer hit the back of a mini-van on Friday night. No one was hurt.

Police say McGinnis was weaving from lane to lane, flashing her bright lights and honking the horn just before the accident.

Officials say the judge refused a sobriety test and would not answer questions.
