Indiana judge involved in 2019 shooting arrested again

Crawford Circuit Judge Sabrina Bell

CRAWFORD CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The judge involved in Indianapolis’ White Castle shooting back in 2019 is in trouble again. The Indiana State Police yesterday arrested Crawford Circuit Judge Sabrina Bell on a domestic battery charge.

Troopers say the incident happened back in April. Bell first made headlines when she was part of a shooting at the White Castle in downtown Indianapolis back in 2019.

A fight in the parking lot ended with a shooting where two other judges were wounded. She was disciplined by the Indiana Supreme Court for that case and has been suspended because of her new arrest.

Indiana State Police released the following:

Today (Thursday), an Indiana State Police investigation has led to the arrest of Sabrina Bell, the Crawford County Circuit Court Judge. These charges stemmed from an incident that occurred in Crawford County on April 12, 2022.

After completing a thorough investigation into the incident, Detectives from the Indiana State Police Special Investigations Section presented an affidavit to a Special Judge assigned to the case who found that probable cause existed for the arrest of Bell on a Level 6 Felony Charge of Domestic Battery in the Presence of a Child Less than 16 Years Old.

Bell was booked into the Crawford County Jail and has since been released on pre-trial conditions.

No further information is available at this time.

All suspects are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
