A Madisonville man who attempted a citizen's arrest of the grand jury foreman instead got himself arrested by Madisonville Police.

Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III stands charged with disorderly conduct, inciting to riot, disrupting a meeting, and resisting arrest.

Madisonville Police Chief Greg Breeden said officers were called to the court around 10 Thursday morning.

Breeden said Fitzpatrick was trying to arrest grand jury foreman Gary Pettway. Fitzpatrick's reasons for allegedly doing so are not clear.

He has previously tried to get the Monroe County grand jury to indict President Barack Obama for treason.

Breeden said when officers from the police department and the Monroe County Sheriff's Department tried to escort Fitzpatrick from the building, an altercation occurred.
