When officers arrived they found 33-year-old Justin Wright who matched the description of the man who was knocking on doors captured on security video.

Chief Terry Moore said Wright was intoxicated.

“Because of his intoxication level he was transported to a local hospital,” added Chief Moore. “While at the hospital Wright punched a Bedford officer in the face with a closed fist and officers had to forcibly put him back into handcuffs.  Once receiving medical clearance Wright was taken to jail.”

Wright is facing charges of public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery causing bodily injury to a police officer.
