Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver reported to the Sheriff's Office in the Judicial Building in downtown Albany, and was booked on aggravated assault charges about 2:00 Friday afternoon.

He was photographed and fingerprinted, and released on $10,000 bond.

Weaver's attorney, Johnnie Graham tells WALB that her client is not guilty.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday morning against Weaver for aggravated assault. This stems from an incident last weekend, in which Weaver was seen in an altercation with his wife.

Weaver's wife, 31-year-old Vester Weaver was treated for injuries at an Albany hospital after an incident between her and her husband at the home of an Albany police officer.

The Albany Police domestic violence incident report says that at the home of Albany Police Captain Mack Green, Weaver caused superficial injuries to his wife, Vester. The report says she was also abused by threats and abusive language. The Police report also says that children were present, and that alcohol was involved in the abuse.

The Police Incident Report also said that Mrs. Weaver had issued between one and five other complaints of previous abuse before this one.

D. A. Greg Edwards said that he would recuse himself from the case if a warrant was issued.
