A Madison County man is in jail after allegedly trying to break into a home in the Town of Lincoln.

Madison County Sheriff's Deputies say when they got to the scene and placed Kenneth Ballard under arrest, he began to fight with the officers and continued to resist arrest until he was put into a patrol car.

During the struggle to arrest Ballard, Deputy Sheriff Frank Garafolo sustained minor injuries, but was treated and released.

Ballard is charged with Trespass, Obstruction of Governmental Administration, Resisting Arrest, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.

He was sent to the Madison County Jail on $5,000 bail.
