Turmoil At SD Hutterite Colony Leads To Arrest

April 5, 2012, 11:53 AM by Karen Sherman

STRATFORD, SD -

A dispute over hogs at a Hutterite colony in South Dakota led to a colony resident being arrested for allegedly chasing a man with a loader.

Officials with the Brown County Sheriff's Office were at the scene for about 24 hours Tuesday and Wednesday. The 21-year-old man who was arrested allegedly drove a front-end loader at a worker for a private security firm hired by one of two disputing factions at the Hutterville Colony.

The two groups have been battling in recent years over control of the colony near Stratford. They are at odds over which branch of the Hutterite religion to follow. A judge in November 2010 ordered dissolution of the colony but the state Supreme Court earlier this year overturned the decision.
