A Geor­gia pro­bate judge, Christi­na Peter­son, was arrest­ed ear­ly Thurs­day morn­ing out­side a night­club in Atlanta. 

Police allege Peter­son, 38, inter­fered with an offi­cer de-esca­lat­ing a sit­u­a­tion involv­ing a woman being escort­ed out by security.

Released body­cam footage shows Peter­son yelling and phys­i­cal­ly resist­ing the offi­cer. She was charged with sim­ple bat­tery and obstruc­tion of a law enforce­ment officer.

Peter­son­’s lawyer claims she inter­vened to defend the woman, but police say she was the aggres­sor and poten­tial­ly intox­i­cat­ed. This inci­dent fol­lows pre­vi­ous con­cerns about Peter­son­’s judi­cial conduct.

The case rais­es ques­tions about pub­lic offi­cial account­abil­i­ty and police trans­paren­cy. Expect fur­ther details and body­cam footage as the case progresses.
