Judge Michael Roberts has expressed fears that the cat-call incident he described to the media on Tuesday was not isolated to a single case.
The judge told The Times Of India newspaper that the incident took place in a restaurant near the court in a suburb of Harris County, Texas, on Sunday night.
He was talking to the local media at a local restaurant when the woman came in to see him and asked for a ride home.
The judge said she had been in a relationship with the man for a few months and was in the process of moving out.
He said that the woman asked him if he had any children and he responded by asking her to get out of his car.
Judge Roberts said she said she wanted to go to a park with her husband, but then suddenly became upset and started yelling at him.
She was asking him to leave.
“She was trying to get in the car, I was telling her to go away.
I told her to stop yelling, she was very aggressive,” he said.
“I just didn’t want to confront her anymore, I wanted to talk to her.”
The judge asked her to leave, but she didn’t.
“She started screaming at me again, and that was when I told the police,” he told The Daily Star.
The incident took away from the courtroom proceedings and from the court hearing itself, he said, and was distracting.
He added that he had been concerned about the behaviour of the woman since the incident and that she was also an acquaintance of his and had made a complaint.
A judge said in court that the police are investigating the case.
