The suspect is accused of yelling expletives and threatening Russell. Doyle was also accused of driving his vehicle toward Russell, which he believed was an attempt to hit him, according to court records. Russell told police he was able to move before being struck.
Doyle wasn’t associated with Sheriff Gene Kelly’s re-election campaign in any way, Kelly said.
Doyle’s next court date is scheduled for Dec. 14. If convicted, he faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
