Greenville attorney David Sutton is indicted on charges of resisting a public officer.

Sutton tells NewsChannel 12 he was indicted by a grand jury this week.

Pitt County deputies say Sutton tried to enter the Pitt County Courthouse on Nov. 15th, refused commands by a deputy to stop, and then refused to be handcuffed.

Sutton says he was conducting usual business as an attorney and therefore should not have been subjected to a pat down at the security checkpoint.
