ENGLISH, Ind. (WISH) — Indiana State Police on Thursday arrested a circuit court judge on a domestic battery charge for an incident that happened April 12 in Crawford County.

State police didn’t release any details of what lead to the arrest of Crawford Circuit Judge Sabrina Bell. She was charged with domestic battery in the presence of a child younger than 16. She was booked into the Crawford County Jail, then released on pretrial conditions, state police said.

The Indiana Supreme Court announced Thursday an interim suspension of Bell, effective immediately.

Bell was in an fight that happened May 1, 2019, at a White Castle in downtown Indianapolis that led to two judges shot. Judicial disciplinary charges were filed against Bell and two other judges, Andrew Adams and Brad Jacobs. The fight began when Brandon Kaiser and Alfredo Vazquez drove by and yelled something at the judges. Bell responded with an obscene gesture. Later, Adams and Jacobs were shot before Kaiser and Vazquez got back into their vehicle and drove away.

The three judges were visiting Indianapolis for a conference.
