“Hackney told officers that Woods was in Bloomington and continued to yell obscenities at officers,” says Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore. “After several minutes Hackney agreed to open the door and shoved Woods out towards officers.”

Hackney aggressively lunged at an officer while raising his hand and attempting to close the door on officers.

“Woods lunged towards officers attempting to grab at an officer’s duty belt,” added Chief Moore. “A taser was used to stop Woods aggressive actions, and both were taken into custody.”

Woods was cleared by medical staff was transported to the Lawrence County Jail on charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and on a warrant for petition to revoke.

Hackney was arrested on charges of assisting a criminal, false reporting, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest.
