(BEDFORD) - A Bedford man was arrested after police went to his home three times and he refused to cooperate with police.

According to Bedford Police Chief Dennis Parsley, officers were called to a home in the 1900 block of 12th Street three times regarding an intoxicated man involved in a domestic dispute.

"When officers arrived the first and second time it was not much of an issue," Parsley says. "He was told to stay inside and calm down. But that didn't last."

On the third call officers found 47-year-old Rusty Bulliner of Bedford standing on the sidewalk.

"He was threatening a neighbor," Parsley says. "He refused to cooperate with officers."

Officers arrested Bulliner on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

When officers went to put the handcuffs on Bullinger he fought with officers and they had to physically restrain him.

"He wouldn't walk to the police car and had to be carried," Parsley says.

Later police heard from a neighbor who was involved in the first domestic incident.

The man told police he heard the fight and a woman ran to his home for help.

The man let the woman inside and he stepped outside the home to see what was going on.

That is when the man says Bulliner struck him in the head and face. The man ran to some construction workers in the area for assistance and that is when Bulliner got into a van and drove the van up onto the sideway attempting to strike the man.

The man headed back to his home and that is when Bulliner allegedly pointed a shot gun at him and another man. The two ran from the scene.

Bulliner was then charges with battery causing injury.
