A Cook County judge charged with drunk driving has been removed from her duties.

Judge Sheila McGinnis was arrested last Friday night in Tinley Park after her Trailblazer hit the back of a minivan. Witnesses told police she was weaving in and out of traffic and flashing her headlights just before the crash.

No one was injured.

Police say the 47-year-old judge refused a sobriety test and would not answer questions.

Judge McGinnis has been removed from her courtroom duties until further notice.
