Indiana National Guard leader accused of using position to keep affair quiet


INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – The leader of Indiana’s National Guard is accused of using his position to keep an affair quiet.

According to a lawsuit filed in Marion County, numerous affairs happened in the Tyndall Armory.

In the complaint, Major General Courtney Carr is said to have kept a contract worker out of a job.

Carr was appointed leader by former Governor Mike Pence in 2015.

Governor Eric Holcomb said after Friday’s bill signings that he still needs to read the complaint.

Carr is still in charge and Holcomb said he has confidence in him.

The Indiana National Guard said it’s aware of the complaint, but officials cannot comment because it’s a pending matter.
