Beatrice Police arrested a man who they say kicked in a door after claiming someone was trying to kill him.
Logan Allen Retherford, 18, was arrested early Tuesday morning for disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and criminal trespassing.
On Feb. 27 at 12:30 a.m., Beatrice Police were called to a North 10th Street residence where it was reported that a man was banging on the door and claiming someone was trying to kill him.
En route to the scene, officers were advised that the man had fled on foot. While attempting to locate him, the officers received a report that the man had returned to the residence and had entered the home.
Officers made contact with the caller and found the man, identified as Retherford, inside the home. The side door had a muddy footprint on it and had sustained damage from being kicked open.
Retherford does not live at the residence, police said. He didn’t know anyone living there and did not have permission to be inside the home.
Retherford later admitted to police that he had ingested methamphetamine about three hours prior and admitted to kicking the door in to enter the home.
Police placed Retherford under arrest and charged him with disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and criminal trespassing.
On Tuesday morning, Retherford was released upon his own recognizance and was ordered not to be within one block of the home on North 10th Street and to reside with his parents and obey all rules of their household. He is scheduled to appear in court again on March 20.
