A federal judge in Kansas is facing charges after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Johnson County Court records show that Kathryn Vratil, 70, was arrested Thursday night. She is charged in Johnson County District Court with driving under the influence and improper driving.

Vratil is a senior judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas.

A complaint filed Friday says Vratil was arrested by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper. She posted a $1,000 bond. Her next court appearance is scheduled for May 21.

Chief Judge Julie Robinson said in a statement Friday that the federal court will handle the incident as a personnel matter and have no further comment.
