LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A federal grand jury indicted a former Bullitt County Sheriff's deputy Wednesday on two counts of deprivation of rights.

According to court documents, Matthew Corder entered a man's home without probable cause. He then arrested the unidentified man. The grand jury alleged Corder also used a weapon and "caused bodily harm" to the man.

In the second count, the grand jury said Corder charged the man with "disorderly conduct" and fleeing and evading" without probable cause. He's accused of including false and misleading information when filing the charges.

As a result, the man was jailed until the charges were eventually dismissed. 

Corder was fired from the Bullitt County Sheriff's office earlier this year, but no public explanation was given. On Wednesday, Dec. 16, the sheriff's officer released a statement citing the investigation as the reason Corder was terminated. 

This is not the first time Corder has found himself in trouble. He was fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department a decade ago for abusing his authority when he handcuffed a man while his car was being repossessed.
