 Eugene Lester Doyle, 38, was picked up by authorities 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 on Sept. 29.

 On the way to the station, Doyle began attempting to kick out the cruiser window, causing the deputy to pull over and call for backup.

 Doyle, while still handcuffed, escaped as deputies attempted to put him in leg irons.

 He was charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and interference with government property.

He should've watched the T.V.

He should've watched the T.V. show"I almost got away with it". Maybe he would have stay on the run for a little longer.

Vskeptical that is a pitiful

Vskeptical that is a pitiful story that you told defending this piece of trash and if any of it is true…Kudos to the cops for delivering a little LONG OVER DUE “Justice”. I’m elated that he is back in custody. After all the pain he has caused freedom is the last thing he deserved. This isn’t the first girlfriend he has held at gun point and threatened. He has quite a history and record for it. Hopefully he’ll get a lot more “Justice” while incarcerated This Time!
