Quick-thinking driver aids Ky. troopers
Call it a prescription for disaster: An Indiana doctor is behind bars after allegedly firing a gun at a driver who captured it all in a cellphone video.
Perrin Dobyns, a staff physician at Branchville Correctional Facility, was arrested last week in Indiana after a Sunday afternoon incident on Interstate 75, near Lexington, Ky. Dobyns is facing a felony charge of wanton endangerment.
A video taken by motorist David Kollar shows a man in a black sedan aiming a gun from the half-open passenger-side window. Kollar began filming when he saw the car swerving from the emergency lane and attempting to cut into another lane.
I’m not trying to be a vigilante and follow this guy, Kollar told a Kentucky TV station, I just want to get the information I need, get off the road and call police.
Kentucky State Police credited him with providing the video and a license-plate number. Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.
