August 10, 2023
The Perry County Sheriff Nick Weems said deputies received a tip that a wanted man named David Doyle was hiding out at a home on Polk Street, in Linden, behind the City Hall.
Chief Deputy Rosson assembled a team of officers on foot to surround the home.
Deputy Alan Daniel found Doyle in a very confined space in the attic, where he had covered himself with insulation. Upon contact, Doyle sprayed Chief Deputy Rosson and Deputy Jason Morrow in the face with pepper spray as they closed in on Doyle in the attic. Doyle then began trying to set the attic on fire with a butane torch.
