LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Once Thunder Over Louisville is done the main task for Louisville Metro Police is to get everyone out of the downtown area and homeward bound. However, one man is accused of not letting officers do that job.

An arrest report says Bennie Carter was 2nd Street and River Road about five minutes after the show ended. Police said Carter refused to stay behind a barricade and pushed an officer to the ground. While being placed under arrest, Carter continued to fight with police.

Carter was charged with disregarding signals from officers directing traffic, alcohol intoxication and disorderly conduct. He will be arraigned April 16.
