Man receives probation for DUI, reckless driving

A man charged with trying to run over a deputy while driving drunk received one year of probation Wednesday in superior court.

Robert Rule pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges for the March 14 incident at Wild Wing Café on Washington Road in which he attempted to strike a deputy with his 2010 Chrysler 300, according to an indictment and his attorney, Portland Campanaro.

An indictment also says he ignored a deputy’s lights and sirens and drove at a “high rate of speed” through the parking lot.

Rule was originally charged with aggravated assault, driving under the influence, fleeing and attempting to elude and reckless driving.
