BEDFORD, Ind. (December 13, 2015) — A Bedford man was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, criminal recklessness, and reckless driving after he allegedly rammed his truck into the Lawrence County Courthouse Friday night. And according to police, it was because he was upset with the Veterans Administration.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department and the Bedford Police Department responded to the scene of a vehicle accident at the Lawrence County Courthouse Friday around 9:40 p.m. When they arrived, they discovered Terry Luttrell, 58, backing up and ramming his truck into the doors of the courthouse.

Luttrell was taken into custody after a brief struggle with responding officers.
