Love-triangle Brawl Leads to Trial Judge Suspension

A Wal-Mart brawl with the new lover of his estranged wife led the Arkansas Supreme Court to suspend a trial judge for 30 days in October.  On April 5th police were called in to intervene when a spat between the two men escalated into a scuffle that sent them down on the floor on April 5th.  The fight started when Circuit Judge Sam Pope of Hamburg, Ark., spotted his estranged wife and her new admirer, identified as Bill Murray, in the Crossett, Ark., Wal-Mart and the two exchanged words eventually calling each other “ass-hole” and throwing punches.  The state’s high court suspended the judge for misconduct and ordered him to attend anger management classes.
