Federal authorities delivered a knockout punch to a Las Vegas judge — a boxing judge that is.

Judge Paul G. Smith, 65, of Las Vegas, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of unlawfully collecting about $250,000 in Social Security benefits from 1994 to 2005.

Seems the good judge forgot to mention to authorities that he’d been working as a licensed boxing judge in Nevada and was involved in various businesses “inconsistent with his status as a disability benefits receipients”, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Las Vegas.

During the period in question, the government said Smith was paid for judging more than 100 boxing matches.

He is scheduled to be arraigned June 12, where he’ll  go before a real judge.
