McConnellsburg father accused of choking, breaking son’s nose during domestic

11 March 2024- A McConnellsburg man is facing multiple felony charges following a domestic incident with his son at their home. Jeremy Todd Doyle is charged with felony aggravated assault with extreme indifference, felony strangulation, misdemeanor assault, and summary harassment. Doyle remains behind bars on $25,000 bail.

Pennsylvania State Police Troopers were alerted just after midnight on March 9th of a domestic incident that had originally occurred on Great Cove Road earlier that night between a man and his son. Troopers spoke to the victim, the son of Jeremy Doyle, at Fulton County Medical Center about the previous incident.

During the interview, the victim reportedly told police he had returned home after work and had gotten into an argument with his father. During the argument, which was verbal at first, the victim allegedly admitted to calling his father a swear name. It was at this point that Doyle allegedly followed his son downstairs and slapped him in the face. After a small back-and-forth, Troopers say Doyle grabbed the victim by his throat and pushed him against a windowsill. This action, Troopers and FCMC staff say, broke the victim’s nose.

After this action, PSP say Doyle choked his son for approximately 30 seconds and held his throat with both hands, or until the victim began to lose feeling. It is unclear how the victim made it to FCMC, but doctors agreed that his nose was broken and PSP photographed the bruising and scratch marks on his face.

Jeremy Doyle was interviewed after this incident when Troopers traveled to his home. Taken in for questioning, Doyle allegedly admitted to having a fight with his son. He also reportedly told them that it became physical, including him holding his thumb to the victim’s neck while choking him. Doyle was taken into custody by PSP Troopers.

PSP also note that both the current victim and Jeremy Doyle were cited with harassment on September 29th, 2022 following another domestic incident.

Jeremy Doyle is behind bars on $25,000 bail.
