INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Clark County judge, Andrew Adams, had his initial hearing on Wednesday.

He is facing six charges of battery and a count of disorderly conduct. A pretrial hearing is set for August.

This stems from an argument that escalated into a fight and shooting on May 1 outside of a White Castle.

Investigators say the judges and two others had been visiting several downtown restaurants and bars before the shooting. They tried to get into a bar across the street from the White Castle near Illinois and South streets after 3 a.m., but it was closed. They then went to the White Castle and were outside when a vehicle pulled up with 23-year-old Alfredo Vazquez and 41-year-old Brandon Kaiser.

The suspect accused of shooting Judge Bradley Jacobs in the chest is Kaiser. He faces 12 battery charges, having a gun without a license and disorderly conduct.

Vazquez faces seven charges as well - two felony counts of battery, four misdemeanor counts of battery and one count of disorderly conduct.
