Atlanta Area Judge Arrested After Fighting Police At Ritzy Buckhead Nightclub

An infamous Douglas County Judge, Christina J. Peterson, has been arrested outside of an Atlanta nightclub for fighting with police. The incident occurred at The Red Martini Restaurant & Lounge in the ritzy Buckhead area. According to police, Peterson was belligerent and struck at least one of them with a closed fist. According to Peterson’s friend, she was acting in the capacity of a good samaritan, attempting to save a woman from getting beat up by a man. The man in question was not arrested on the scene, but Peterson was.

Judge Christina Peterson has a checkered past. In April, Peterson was found guilty of “systemic incompetence.” The Judicial Qualifications Commission voted unanimously that she be ousted from office following 30 counts of misconduct. The three-person panel found that she ignored courthouse rules, abused personnel, and made inappropriate posts on social media.
