State Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced the suspension of Superior Court Judge Carlia Brady on Wednesday.

Brady was arrested in Woodbridge Township and charged with hindering the apprehension of another, according to Rabner's statement and a Supreme Court order filed Wednesday. Arrest details weren't provided.

Woodbridge police and the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office didn't return messages seeking comment.

The court order says there's probable cause to conclude that Brady violated the state's Code of Judicial Conduct. The matter has been referred to an advisory committee for further review.

Brady began serving on the bench in Middlesex County in April, according to state judiciary records. She could not be reached by phone Wednesday.
