Suspension For Ohio Chief In Stars' Surrogate Case

Posted: Updated:
MARTINS FERRY, Ohio (AP) - A mayor has suspended an Ohio police chief without pay in the alleged snooping on a Hollywood couple's surrogate mother.

Martins Ferry Chief Barry Carpenter was suspended Tuesday, one day after Bridgeport Police Chief Chad Dojack was put on paid leave by his village council.

Both chiefs are accused in an alleged scheme to take items from the Martins Ferry home of the woman who recently carried twins for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. A special prosecutor said the eastern Ohio chiefs, who are charged with several felonies, tried to sell items to celebrity photographers. Carpenter and Dojack pleaded not guilty Friday.

Martins Ferry Mayor Phil Wallace said Carpenter's suspension is indefinite.
