BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — An Indianapolis man has been arrested after ramming his SUV through a security gate at the home of rocker John Mellencamp and kicking in a door.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department says 48-year-old Robert P. Carter was arrested about 6 a.m. Thursday by officers responding to an alarm at Mellencamp’s home outside Bloomington. No one was home at the time.

Carter told officers he was there to “arrest Mellencamp for supporting a government” Carter doesn’t support. He was charged with burglary, residential entry and criminal trespass.

Carter had been released from the Monroe County Jail after a court appearance Wednesday for having a handgun without a license. He also received a mental health evaluation.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Carter who can comment on his behalf.

  1. He was there not to arrest but to murder Mr Mellencamp. This was proven by the gun he brought and by the fact that he wasn’t authorized to carry a weapon or to arrest anyone. Send that man to prison for the rest of his miserable life.
