CLEVELAND, Ohio — Willoughby Judge Larry Allen has been appointed as visiting judge to preside over the OVI case involving Councilman Zack Reed.

Judges at the Cleveland Municipal Court recused themselves from the case earlier this month. The case had been assigned to Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr, but she formally recused herself during Reed’s pretrial, saying the councilman had previously endorsed her.

Reed was arrested on the OVI charge March 5.

He told police he had two beers and Listerine. Police said he failed his field sobriety tests.

He has returned to work.

Reed has two previous OVI arrests.
