Resnick To Retire, Drink 24/7


Left: Resnick with unidentified liquid on bench

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick confirmed that she will retire at the end of this year after more than 30 years' service as a judge.

"It is with a combination of pleasure and sadness that I announce my decision not to seek a fourth term on the Supreme Court of Ohio," said Resnick in a statement yesterday. "The fact is that these long drives from Ottawa Hill to Columbus really cut into my drinking time."

The justice, who led state police on a drunken, low-speed chase on I-75 last January, denied that her legal problems conributed to her decision. She registered a 0.216 percent blood alcohol level on a field Breathalyzer test.

"Hey - I've been half in the bag every day for the last 35 years, and racked up only a handful of drinking-related charges," she said. "I just want to spend my days sucking down martinis and watching reruns of 'The OC' on FOX."

Police video shown repeatedly on TV and the Internet showed Resnick protesting over being pulled over and repeatedly asking officers to allow her to leave.

"You know, it's really all about just getting a good buzz and maintaining it," she said, dropping two blue cheese-stuffed olives into a glass. "Is that so wrong?"

Comments:
She says she was sober for 25 years, and this was a relapse.
