Guilty plea in Madison Co. road rage case

MADISON CO, Ky. (WKYT) - A doctor charged in connection to a road rage incident on Interstate 75 has agreed to a plea deal.

It's been eleven months since Perrin Dobyns pointed what appeared to be a gun at another driver on Interstate 75 in Madison County. David Kollar says he shot video of the incident after he saw a driver passing vehicles in the emergency lane.

"I got behind him to get his license plate number, held my camera out the window so that he could see that I'm back there and I'm going to report this," Kollar said.

That's when Dobyns pointed the weapon and fired a shot from what police say was actually a BB gun, and then drove on.

"He just had this big frown on his face, just real cold looking and pointed the gun at me and I'm like 'This isn't good,'" Kollar said.

Dobyns was arrested a few days later. At the time he was a doctor at a prison in Indiana.

On Monday he pleaded guilty to wanton endangerment. The recommended sentence is three years of probation.

Kollar says he's satisfied with the plea deal and the recommended sentencing, he believes the publicity from the case has been punishment enough.

"The guy made a mistake, no one got hurt, he did do some jail time and he's lost his ability to be a doctor so he's already going through a lot of punishment," he said.
