Police: No Wrongdoing in Local Entrepreneur's Arrest

November 15, 2010

An internal Lynchburg police investigation has determined that an officer acted appropriately when he arrested entrepreneur and developer Oliver Kuttner.

The News & Advance reports that the investigation found no wrongdoing by the officer.

Police Chief Parks Snead said in a statement that the officer acted within police department policy.

Kuttner was the leader of a team that won a $5 million prize for developing a car that can run for more than 100 miles on a gallon of gas. The Charlottesville resident was arrested October 12 following a traffic stop and charged with expired registration and obstruction of justice without force.

City Manager Kimball Payne requested the investigation after he spoke with Kuttner.
