19 Action News has the story of Marc Garofoli, a bailiff for Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Anthony Russo, and his arrest for DUI last night.
It's your run-of-the-mill DUI case for the most part: a cop spotted Garofoli weaving and speeding on I-480, pulled him over, and went through the field sobriety test.
The hilarious part? Garofoli pulling the "Do you know who I am?" routine because he works for a judge.
His lame attempt to get out of the arrest after the jump.
According to the police report, Garofoli asked the officer, "I don't get any professional courtesy? I work for a judge. This is political."
In another statement, Garofoli allegedly says, "I sponsor the Cleveland Police and Fire. I own a bar in Cleveland" and asked "You drive in Cuyahoga County or Cleveland?"
When the officer asked if that was a threat, he said, "You go to the county."
Absolutely shocked that didn't work.
