Coach Doty assault case dismissed

The case involving assault charges against White House Heritage High School head cross country coach Kevin Doty, 59, has been dismissed.

According to court documents, the case, before General Sessions Judge Joel Perry, was dismissed on Monday, Jan. 29,

On Sept. 10, 2017, White House police responded to a domestic call in Doty’s home following an argument between Doty and his 30-year-old son, Taylor, which allegedly resulted in Mr. Doty pushing his son into a ceramic planter.

Mr. Doty denied the accusation, stating that his son fell and was not pushed, according to the police report.

Based on statements from the witnesses, Kevin Doty was arrested and placed in the patrol car.

Kevin Doty secured his $1,000 bond and was scheduled to face the charge in General Sessions Court, which took place last Monday.

Mr. Doty is an unpaid volunteer coach for Robertson County Schools, according to school spokesperson Jim Bellis, who stated at the time that Doty had not been suspended by the district, pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
