As President I plan on bring ethics charges against the First Vice-President because of his behavior at our last Executive Board meeting. As President do I have the authority to suspend him from the Board until the ethics violations are resolved.

There is certainly nothing in Robert's Rules of Order that gives you any such authority.

No. Your Board may, but you'll have to consult your bylaws to see. If they do not provide that authority, and the Board is subordinate to the membership (as is usually the case, but sometimes not, especially in corporations), then only a meeting of the full membership has the authority to do so, and (if your organization has adopted RONR as its parliamentary authority) only in accordance with Chapter XX of RONR.
