Jayme Michael Gold, 47, of Sumner, who is charged with disarming a peace officer of a dangerous weapon, a Class D felony, intends to rely on the defense of “intoxication/diminished responsibility” at trial scheduled for 9 a.m., March 3, according to a Feb. 17 filing by his defense attorney. He is accused of grabbing for a Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputy’s side arm to the point that it almost fell out of its holster. The deputy was trying to restrain him because he was “trying to leave and being assaultive towards others,” says the criminal complaint.
