    The Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities is requiring a judge in Hagerstown to take daily Breathalyzer tests before court.

    It's a condition of a private reprimand Washington County Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III agreed to Jan. 17.

    He also must attend at least five Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week and abstain from drinking.

    Boone pleaded guilty in March to driving under the influence in a collision that caused minor injuries to the other driver, a 25-year-old woman.

    After the accident, Boone blew a blood-alcohol level of 0.18 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

    He was fined $1,000 for that offense and sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation.
