Indianapolis-area magistrate suspended after drug charge

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A suburban Indianapolis magistrate facing a drug charge has been suspended by the Indiana Supreme Court.

Hamilton County Magistrate Will Greenaway is accused of buying methamphetamine from a state police informant in a Walmart parking lot last Wednesday in Noblesville. He's also accused of biting an officer's thumb while trying to swallow the bag of meth.

Greenaway was suspended with pay Tuesday.

Magistrates have the same duties as judges in Indiana but aren't elected. They are chosen by judges to work with them. Greenaway has been a magistrate for eight years.
