LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man once charged and later acquitted in the murder of his stepbrother is once again in trouble with the law.

Joshua Young, 20, of Louisville, was arrested February 13 in the 6000 block of Outer Loop.

According to Louisville Metro police, an officer responding to a call about an unknown man beating on the window of an apartment and refusing to leave found Young walking in the roadway. When the officers asked Young to walk over to the police car, Young raised his arms and said he was feeling weird.

Police said Young was wearing his sweatshirt backwards, acting paranoid and began to walk backwards into traffic. The report also says Young couldn't remember if he had taken any intoxicating substances.

Young walked to a nearby pizza restaurant where he was taken into custody. Police said Young was resisting officers and had to be placed in leg restraints. While being taken to jail Young tried to kick out the back window of the police car.

Young was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. He was has since been released from Louisville Metro Corrections.

In August 2013, a jury found Young not guilty in the beating death of Trey Zwicker, 14. Zwicker's body was found in a field in may 2011 behind Liberty High School on Indian Trail. Young's father, Josh Gouker pleaded guilty to the murder of Zwicker. Gouker, who is serving a life sentence, testified during his son's trial that Young had nothing to do with Zwicker's killing.
