Dobyns and his lawyer, Jim Lowry of Lexington, declined comment afterward.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 2. Dobyns’ plea agreement calls for supervised probation for three years but says he could face three years in prison if he violates terms of the deal.

David Kollar told police he saw a driver operating recklessly on I-75 last September. Kollar recorded video with his smartphone.

No one was injured.
