ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

Wayne County Judge Wade McCree is fighting to save his job in the wake of a sex scandal. Not only is he facing a judicial disciplinary hearing, his physician revealed in court on Tuesday he is suffering from hypomania.

At times, McCree was a veritable mannequin during the hearing Tuesday compared to last week's effervescent testimony. It was a veritable potpourri of yeses, nos, that's correct and I can't recall all the while staring at an imaginary spot on the carpet like it was a gravy stain.

On at least two occasions, McCree began splitting legal hairs.

"You are now calling other judges on behalf of your mistress? Am I not correct?" he was asked.

"You are not correct," McCree said.

"Calling on your own behalf, Mr. McCree?" he was asked.

"No. I called the judge's clerk. I didn't call the judge," McCree said.

"You called the judge's clerks, did you not?" he was asked.

"Yes. That I did," McCree said.

The judge was also asked, "You wanted to break up with her in June-July?"

"I didn't say June," McCree said.

"July, August, September and October, correct?" he was asked.

"Yes," McCree said.

Now the judge's lover, Ms. Mott, must have been watching the live stream on myFOXDetroit.com because she texted me her appraisal of McCree's performance. She said, "Your fav judge has taken the witness stand either high or sedated."

Then, just like that, the judge lost sight of the gravy stain and started freelancing.

"I couldn't afford to put her up. She asked me to put her up in one of those Residence Inn hotels where you get the kitchen and the living quarters. I said, 'I don't have money like that,'" McCree said.

"It would be a much more graduated influx into the amplitude of her emotional sign curve," the judge remarked at another point.

"So you do want to have sex with her?" he was also asked.

"Yeah, it would be fine with me," McCree said.

Earlier in the day, McCree's personal doctor, David Jacobi, blamed his behavior on hypomania, an impulse control disorder. He said he learned about it when we did.

"When I heard Wade McCree report to have said... 'no shame in my game,' it suggested to me a loss of the normal control that people who are judges normally have," Jacobi testified.

McCree's testimony will continue Wednesday morning.
