Barking at Police K9 Earns Ohio Man A Court Date

Associated Press

April 07, 2011

MASON, Ohio — Police say an Ohio man has been charged with a misdemeanor for barking at a police dog.

A police report says 25-year-old Ryan James Stephens was charged with teasing a police dog in the Cincinnati suburb of Mason.

Officer Bradley Walker wrote that he heard the K9 dog barking uncontrollably inside his patrol car while he was investigating a car crash at a pub early Sunday morning. Walker says Stephens was making barking noises and hissing at the animal.

Walker reported that Stephens said “the dog started it” when asked why he was harassing the animal. The officer said Stephens appeared highly intoxicated.

There was no answer to calls to Stephens’ home in Mason. He is to appear April 21 in municipal court.

    Dumba$$. What if this K9 had gotten loose? I am sure he would have been wanting to sue the Department. Drunk or not, this was beyond stupid! Throw the book at him.

    Perhaps if he thinks the dog "started it", he probably wouldn't like it if the dog "finished it". Is that a finger or Pepperoni treat???? Problem solved.......
