In December 2011, Post sent an attorney to jail for contempt of court. Post, who presides over the 58th District Court in Hudsonville, allegedly questioned attorney Scott Millard's client if he was on drugs. Millard advised his client of his Fifth Amendment rights, and the judge held him in contempt of court and put him in jail.

According to the complaint, Post told the attorney: "I don't care what you think," laughed at him, and told someone in the courtroom that "the show is just beginning."

Post has 14 days to respond to the complaint before a hearing. If he's found responsible, the Michigan Supreme Court could publicly shame him, suspend him without pay or remove him from office.
