INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications has filed disciplinary charges against three southern Indiana judges in connection with a night of Indianapolis bar-hopping that ended with a fight outside a fast-food restaurant during which two of them were shot and wounded.
The commission announced misconduct charges Friday against circuit judges Andrew Adams and Bradley Jacobs of Clark County and Sabrina Bell of Crawford County over the May 1 altercation outside a White Castle when Adams and Jacobs each were shot. Court records indicate the altercation began after one of two men in a SUV yelled something at the judges and Bell extended a middle finger at the two.
Each judge has 20 days to answer the charges.
Adams pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge and received a one-year suspended sentence.
