Schuylkill Co. Sheriff candidate charged

A man hoping to be elected to uphold the law in Schuylkill County is instead charged with breaking it.

State police say Patrick Reynolds pulled a gun on a repo-man who was trying to repossess his car for late payments.

Reynolds is the Republican candidate for Schuylkill County Sheriff.

Police say Reynolds changed his story three times when they interviewed him.

Reynolds now faces charges of assault, making terroristic threats and lying to authorities.
