CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Authorities in South Texas are investigating whether a state district judge brandished a handgun and attempted to run a motorist off the road in a road-rage incident last month.

A Corpus Christi police record indicates a Mercedes registered to Judge Guy Williams was involved in an altercation April 28.

The record shows a woman told police the driver of the Mercedes “pulled a gun on them.”

Police and the Nueces County district attorney’s office told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that they often have cases adjudicated in Williams’ court, so they’re forwarding the road-rage incident to Texas Rangers to avoid conflict.

Williams says he can’t comment on a pending investigation but will “cooperate fully with authorities.”

The Caller-Times reports police reports document two previous road-rage incidents involving Williams.
