ST. ANDREWS, Prince Edward Island, July 10 (UPI) -- A Canadian man was charged with assault after he allegedly shoved a sheriff's car off his property with a forklift, police said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Wilfred Doyle, 45, of St. Andrews was charged with mischief and obstructing a police officer, as well as assault with a deadly weapon, after the run-in at his home last week.

The Mounties told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. the law enforcement officer went to Doyle's place on Prince Edward Island to serve him a court order. Doyle turned the routine process into a confrontation when he fired up his tractor, which was equipped with a forklift, and pushed the car out of his yard.

Doyle was released after spending a night in jail.
