Eugene Doyle, 38, was questioned around 2:30 p.m. after he held his live-in girlfriend at gunpoint and threatened to kill her inside their home on the 3000 block of Walcott Lane in Hephzibah.

 

Chew said Doyle’s girlfriend was able to call for help when Doyle passed out while under the influence. Authorities are not sure what Doyle was under the influence of at this time.

 

On the way to the station, the deputy transporting Doyle pulled over the side of the road and called for backup after Doyle began attempting to kick out the window, Chew said.

 

Deputies had taken Doyle from the cruiser to put leg irons on him when he escaped. Chew said Doyle was still handcuffed at the time of his escape.

 

He is wanted on charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, interference with government property, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, felony obstruction and escape.

 

He is described as a white man standing 5-foot-6 and weighing 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

 

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

It always amazes me that men feel if they can just threaten or beat their girl friends enough, their relationship will improve.

The sad thing is that a lot

The sad thing is that a lot of times by the time the police get there, the woman sides with her "man". Then when he does get out of jail she is right back with him.

It would not surprise me if his girlfriend bails him out of jail -- if the "keystone cops" ever catch him.

I have to say a few words,

I have to say a few words, I'm not real sure but i do believe that this could be the man that got away form the officers of Richmond County that was on Fulcher Rd. I don't know how the little guy did it but i would run for my life too. It was real dirty from what i seen from the top point of view. I wasn't worried about the deer, i am now worried about this little guy, has anyone checked the wooded area where he was beaten @? The way i saw it the little gut may be in them woods dead. I guess that would not be said unless you were a hunter in the tree. The seen i got the officers beat the HOLLY HELL out of the man. I guess they feel real big. It may be a good idea to check the wooded area where the beating took place. These officers will just get a hand shake like always i am sure. THAT IS RICHMOND COUNTY for ya. I think we are number 1 on POLICE BRUTALITY!!!!!
