(BEDFORD) – An Indianapolis man was arrested Monday morning after Bedford Police officers were called to Lowes after a report of a male bleeding and carrying a hatchet and open merchandise.

Officers located 38-year-old Christopher Brown hiding at the car wash at 16th Street and Plaza Drive.

“While speaking with Mr. Brown he became abusive and was told to lower his voice,” Chief Moore added. “After several minutes of interaction and Brown refusing to cooperate with officers, he was placed into handcuffs.” 

During a search, officers found Brown with several types of medication that he did not have a prescription for.

Brown was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug and possession of a controlled substance.
