INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, Governor Eric Holcomb announced that Indiana National Guard Adjutant General Courtney Carr will retire.

Carr was recently accused in a lawsuit of using his position to keep an affair quiet.

According to the lawsuit, numerous affairs happened in the Tyndall Armory.

The complaint also alleges that he kept a contract worker out of a job.

Carr was appointed by former Governor Mike Pence in 2015.

“Upon my recommendation, Maj. Gen. Carr has announced his decision to retire,” Gov. Holcomb said on Monday. “I received his resignation letter Saturday, and I thanked him for his service to our state and country.”
