According to the New York Post, a county judge in Texas who was charged with drunk driving blamed his intoxication on a homemade asthma remedy using whiskey.

Limestone County Judge Daniel Burkeen was arrested Wednesday in Mart, Texas after police say he was observed driving in an erratic matter.

Burkeen, in a statement, said he was arrested for DWI, made a mistake and accepts responsibility. Burkeen said he tried an asthma home remedy of whiskey, honey and lemon — plus a decongestant.
