An eastern Kentucky judge accused of a long list of belligerent behavior including name-calling, unethically presiding over cases, and threatening a "bullet in the head" for the next police officer to pull him over has been suspended, reports the Associated Press.

In all, Pike County Circuit Judge Steven D. Combs faces 10 counts of misconduct. He was temporarily suspended with pay Tuesday pending a final ruling by the state's Judicial Conduct Commission. Another hearing will be held, and the commission's options could include removing Combs from the bench, suspending or reprimanding him.
