Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a local judge of elections was arrested after allegedly failing to show up to the polls Tuesday and instead deciding to work as a jitney driver for the day.

The Allegheny County sheriff’s office says 55-year-old Darrin Farmer of North Versailles (Vehr-SAYLES’) never came to the North Versailles precinct with voting equipment, delaying poll opening by three hours.

Authorities say his wife said he dropped her off at a store to buy refreshments for volunteers but then left. They allege he decided to spend the day giving rides for money.

Farmer faces charges including tampering with public records and obstructing a government function; a listed number for him couldn’t be found and it’s unclear whether he has an attorney who could respond to the charges.
