Charges dropped against man arrested for pushing fiance out of moving-vehicle


LOGAN — State prosecutors have dropped all charges against a 48-year-old Heber City man, accused of pushing his fiancé out of a truck, while driving through Sardine Canyon.

Daniel Talbot appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning for a preliminary hearing.

Court records show, prosecutors told the court they were unable to locate the victim in the case and were dismissing all eight charges without prejudice.

Talbot was originally arrested by Utah Highway Patrol troopers in July, after a 50-year-old woman reported being pushed out of his truck, while traveling through the canyon, near Sherwood Hills.

UHP Sgt. Cade Brenchley said the two people had been camping in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and were traveling through the area when they got into a physical argument.

The victim told troopers Talbot had pushed her out of his truck while traveling between 10-and-15 mph.

Brenchley said the victim was heavily intoxicated and had a broken wrist.

Talbot had been charged with four counts of aggravated assault, a third-degree felony and four other misdemeanors.
