Judge charged with crime

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area judge has been charged with domestic violence assault and battery.

David Parrott, 59, was arraigned Monday in 35th District Court in Plymouth, according to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office.

Parrott is a judge on the 34th District Court in Romulus, southwest of Detroit.

He was arrested Saturday after a 55-year-old woman described as his “domestic partner” told police she received a bump on her head, a cut to one of her hands and pain to her tailbone at their condo in Van Buren Township, prosecutors said.

Van Buren Township is about 30 miles southwest of Detroit.

Parrott was released on personal bond. A pretrial conference has been scheduled for Feb. 28.
