Trial Set For MI Deputy Who Pulled Gun On Tow Truck Driver

Here's the story from the Adrian Daily Telegram:
A Sept. 24 trial was set Wednesday for a former Lenawee County sheriff’s deputy accused of pulling a gun on a tow truck driver attempting to repossess a pickup at the deputy’s home.
Daniel Dalton Rudd, 34, waived arraignment in Lenawee County Circuit Court on felonious assault and firearms charges. He remains free on personal recognizance.

The veteran sheriff’s department sergeant was fired in April after an internal investigation of the Feb. 8 incident was completed. He was charged with four felony counts in June after an investigation by a Michigan State Police detective at the Jackson post. Detective Duane Hickock said the tow truck driver made a video recording when Rudd confronted him at his Tipton-area home while he was repossessing a pickup.
