Texas: McAllen Police release dash-cam video after prosecutors claim no evidence exists to convict Judge Nora Longoria of DWI

SAN ANTONIO — A DWI case against a South Texas appeals judge who failed a field sobriety test in July was dismissed last month, the McAllen Monitor reported Wednesday.

Nora Longoria, a 13th Court of Appeals judge, was pulled over last July while going 69 mph in a 55 mph zone in the Rio Grande Valley city. Longoria, who failed a field sobriety test but refused a Breathalyzer, showed an officer her judicial badge and asked him to let her go home, the Express-News reported after the July arrest.
