Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse accompanied city officers to serve a search warrant July 1 at a Fairview Drive residence. The evening ended with Cruse tackling a suspected drug dealer who was running from police.
A district judge found probable cause to send numerous charges, including trafficking, against Brett Alan Decker, 25, to a grand jury.
However, Cruse, along with the City of Hodgenville, is facing fallout from the incident.
A Hodgenville couple has filed a civil suit in LaRue Circuit Court claiming they were detained and searched unlawfully by Cruse.
