Claremore Police arrested a Rogers County judge Sunday afternoon after an officer said he found her behind the wheel in a parking lot with her head slumped toward her chest.

Witnesses told police they said Kassie McCoy ran off the road several times before she pulled into a store parking lot.

The report said she was unsteady on her feet and admitted to drinking a full bottle of champagne.

She was booked into jail for a misdemeanor charge of being in control of a vehicle while having a blood alcohol content four times the legal limit after a breathalyzer showed her to have a blood alcohol content of .35.

The following statement was on McCoy's Facebook page.

“As most of you know already, and for those of you who don't, yesterday I found myself in a compromising position after making a series of bad decisions. I would like to formally and personally apologize to the citizens in Rogers County for my actions, especially those who have put so much support and faith in me. It is with a heavy heart that I admit I have battled with an alcohol dependency issue for several years and was, quite honestly, to afraid to ask for help. This is in no way an no excuse for the events of yesterday. I am embarrassed both personally and professionally and realize the responsible thing to do is seek professional residential help and I will be doing so immediately. Unfortunately, substance dependency is something that effects many of us, perhaps not personally, but within our family and friends. I ask that during this time of growth that you keep me in your thoughts and prayers. In the meantime, I will make no further statements.”
