A family court associate judge was arrested last week after police reported seeing his pickup weaving across lanes of Camp Bowie Boulevard, according to police reports obtained Monday.

Clifford Lee Bronson, 43, of Fort Worth, faces a charge of driving while intoxicated/open alcohol container, according to police.

Bronson is an associate judge in Title IV-D Court No. 2 at the Family Law Center in downtown Fort Worth. That court hears cases related to child support.

Bronson could not be reached to comment Monday.

State District Judge Jeff Walker, administrative judge for the region that oversees that court, declined to comment about Bronson's case.

"It's an awkward situation," Walker said. "We'll see how the legal proceedings turn out."

About 12:30 a.m. Thursday, an off-duty Saginaw police officer and his passenger first reported seeing a black Chevrolet pickup that was unable to stay in a single traffic lane as it traveled west on Camp Bowie, the report stated.

The off-duty officer followed the truck until it pulled into a fast-food restaurant in the 6700 block of Camp Bowie. The truck fishtailed as it pulled out of the parking lot and headed back onto Camp Bowie.

At that time, a Fort Worth patrol officer saw the truck on Camp Bowie, weaving across all lanes of traffic, according to the reports. The officer stopped the pickup in the 6900 block of Camp Bowie.
