Music icon John Mellencamp‘s Indiana home was allegedly broken into the early morning hours of Thursday, February 7. Deputies quickly responded to an alarm call from the residence, and a man named Robert Carter was subsequently arrested by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department after being caught in the home.

Carter reportedly rammed his SUV into the security gate and kicked down his door all in an effort to “arrest” Mellencamp for supporting a government in which Carter doesn’t support. Carter didn’t succeed at the bizarre venture, as Mellencamp wasn’t home at the time of the break-in.

According to FOX 59, Carter is facing charges of residential entry, burglary, and criminal trespass. Just a few days prior to the break-in, Carter was released Monroe County Jail after appearing in court for having a handgun on him without a license.

Mellencamp has not yet commented on the matter, however, he’s been vocal on Instagram since the alleged incident, posting numerous times about the opening night of “The John Mellencamp Show” tour.
