Former Justice of the Peace Arrested in Jefferson County

Posted: Updated:
BOULDER -

A former Silver Bow County Justice of the Peace was arrested in Jefferson County Thursday morning and is being charged with driving under the influence of drugs.

Robert "Bob" Lee was arrested after he was stopped on Interstate 90 westbound just after 12 a.m.

Jefferson County Sheriff, Craig Doolittle, says officers received a call, saying a vehicle was driving in the wrong direction on the interstate. When officers arrived, they observed Lee driving before he pulled over.

Lee was released after posting bond. His bond was set at $770 for the misdemeanor DUI charge and at $25,000 for a probation violation, stemming from recent drug allegations.

Last month, Lee was given a three year deferred sentence for "doctor shopping" in order to obtain methadone.
