A Jessamine County grand jury has dismissed the case against a deputy sheriff who was charged in November with nearly hitting a constable with a patrol car.
The grand jury found no true bill, a legal term meaning it decided there was no probable cause to indict, last week in the case of Jessamine Deputy Sheriff David Mudd, Commonwealth's Attorney Tom Lockridge said.
"They heard the evidence and decided no true bill," Lockridge said.
Jessamine Constable Chauncey Tudor had filed charges of wanton endangerment, unlawful imprisonment, official misconduct and harassment against Mudd.

Tudor had alleged that during an Oct. 29 dispute, Mudd had nearly struck him with the car.
"I appreciate that the grand jury listened to everyone's testimony and came to the conclusion we fully expected them to come to all along," Mudd said.
