(BEDFORD) – A Bedford man was arrested after Bedford Police were called to WalMart Saturday afternoon.
The caller reported a male ran over his tablet and punched him in the face and stomach and pushed him down.
The caller wanted the male to pay for the damaged tablet.
When police arrived, they spoke with 55-year-old Charles Rittenhouse III, of 2417 L Street.
According to Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore, “Mr. Rittenhouse showed the usual signs of intoxication and kept changing his story.”
Officers watched the store video and again questioned Rittenhouse.
“When questioning Mr. Rittenhouse about how his story was not consistent with the store video he became verbally abusive towards the officers,” Cheif Moore added. “Officers asked Mr. Rittenhouse to lower his voice so as not to disturb the customers, but he continued to yell, and after cursing at two juveniles nearby he was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.”
