HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (AP) - A western Michigan judge who was suspended for misconduct could be in hot water again.

A lawyer says Hudsonville Judge Kenneth Post left a threatening voicemail after Philip Mallery missed a court hearing last week.

The judge told Mallery: “You keep going because if I find you, it will not be pleasant.” The 23-year-old is accused of driving an unregistered motorbike and possessing drugs.

The Grand Rapids Press (http://bit.ly/1QGIdL3 ) says Post has removed himself from Mallery’s case. The judge was on a fishing trip and unavailable for comment Friday.

Mallery’s attorney, Joshua Blanchard, has filed a complaint with the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission.

Post was suspended for 30 days in 2013 after sending a lawyer to jail for contempt. The Michigan Supreme Court called Post’s conduct “irresponsible.”
