LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man for throwing rocks at people from the Big Four Bridge on Derby Day.
According to an arrest report, officers were called to the orange parking lot near the Big Four Bridge, shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday on a report that several people were harassing children on the playground.
Moments later, they received a report that several people were throwing rocks from the ramp of the Big Four Bridge, trying to hit people below.
Police say when they arrived, they stopped 18-year-old Jordan Clutter with four others, all of whom fitted the descriptions of the people involved.
According to the arrest report, Clutter immediately began yelling and cursing at police, arguing that officers had no right to stop him or pat him down. Police say they found a large bowie knife in his front pocket, and a bandana that was placed in such a way that he could easily cover his face. He also allegedly had a small amount of alcohol and a marijuana grinder in his backpack.
Police say Clutter admitted to throwing rocks from the bridge, and a witness claimed that one rock almost hit a child.
Clutter was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon without a permit, disorderly conduct, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of alcohol by a minor.
