— A man arrested for riding a mule after dark has filed a lawsuit against the town of Benson.

Three years ago, Chris Lutterloah Jr. was arrested during the Mule Day Festival for riding his mule after dark.

He was charged with disorderly conduct. Those charges were eventually dropped.

Lutterloah is seeking $20,000 in damages for missing work and for having to deal with what he called a "filthy" jail cell.
