NICHOLASVILLE — A constable alleges that a Jessamine County deputy sheriff nearly hit him with a patrol car, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in Jessamine District Court.
Jessamine County Constable Chauncey Tudor filed charges of wanton endangerment, unlawful imprisonment, official misconduct and harassment against Deputy Sheriff David Mudd.
The charges stem from an Oct. 29 dispute. Tudor alleges that Mudd "attempted and threatened me to a physical confrontation."
Tudor says in the complaint that Mudd "made offensive course of utterance towards me. He then restrained me from leaving the area by parking his patrol car in front of me, two other officers and a civilian that were trying to leave."
The complaint lists Wilmore police officer Jeff Bol, Jessamine County Constable Bobby Wombles and Jessie Boyle as witnesses. The complaint doesn't say where the confrontation happened.
The complaint says Mudd was asked to move his vehicle but refused.
"He finally moved his vehicle at a later time, coming at me while I was outside my vehicle and missing me, endangering my life," Tudor says in the complaint. "He committed an act relating to his office which constitutes an unauthorized exercise of his duties."
Mudd, Tudor and the witnesses could not be reached for comment Wednesday. But in a statement, the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office said it was aware of the pending complaint.
"We have no further comment regarding this matter pending the outcome of the legal process," the statement said.
Mudd was served a summons Monday to appear in Jessamine District Court on Dec. 7.
