US Marshals: Reward offered for Hardin County man charged with assaulting deputy sheriff

David E. Doyle

The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force announced Wednesday an unspecified cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a Hardin County man wanted for the aggravated assault of a sheriff’s deputy.
Investigators say the incident occurred in Hardin County in October when a deputy sheriff attempted to arrest David Earl Doyle, 45, on other charges.
During the attempted arrest, investigators say Doyle assaulted the deputy while attempting to escape and at one point the suspect’s dogs joined the attack. Doyle was able to break free after a struggle, ran into a wooded area and has been a fugitive since.
The Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force said it began looking for Doyle in November, but say so far they have not received any useful information concerning his whereabouts.
Marshals are now asking for the public’s help in locating Doyle. Investigators say Doyle has a violent criminal history and should be considered armed and dangerous.
He’s described as 6 feet tall, weighing 230 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair.
Marshals are urging anyone with information concerning Doyle to contact them at 731- 427-4661. They say all calls will be kept confidential.
