Zack Reed OVI charges: Cleveland Municipal Court judges excuse themselves from case

CLEVELAND - All of the judges in Cleveland Municipal Court have recused themselves from the Zack Reed drunken driving case.

It means the Supreme Court has been notified and will have to bring in a visiting judge to handle the accusations.

A visiting judge will likely be assigned to Reed's case this week or next.

Reed, 51, was pulled over by police shortly before 2 a.m. on March 5 near East Ninth Street and Rockwell Avenue on suspicion of drunken driving.

Reed has pleaded not guilty to his third OVI charge. If convicted, he faces between 10 days and six months in jail, along with fines and probation.
