A Queens County (Prince Edward Island) blueberry farmer, who used his tractor to push a sheriff's car off his property last July and threatened the lives of two deputy sheriffs, is going to jail.

Wilfred Harold Doyle was sentenced Tuesday (July 3) to 90 days in the provincial correctional centre after being found guilty of all four offences with which he'd been charged.

Doyle had been charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, damage to property and obstructing a police officer.

Provincial Court Judge Nancy Orr granted a request from Doyle, who represented himself during the trial, to serve his sentence on weekends.

Upon the completion of the weekend sentence he will spend the next 18 months on probation.
