A drunk barking at a dog. I would probably let him off on the basis of mental idiot. Is there a mental institution this guy could be sent to for the rest of his life to protect him from himself? Even drunk who would do something that dumb? Oh wait he did.

If you harass a police officer you go to jail. Now since this dog is legally a police officer guesswhat???? You go to jail and give the guy a mental evaluation also sounds like a nutjob to me

Police Chief Ron Ferrell "They are going to do anything they can do to try to do the job they are hired to do" > is this guy for real? I wonder how many interviews he conducted before he HIRED this particular DOG! This guy and his ridiculous comments are almost funny! I think he probably discriminates in all the other animals in the kingdom! He only hires DOGS!:-) Since the DOGS are HIRED, I wonder what their retirement pensions look like! kasich should investigate this!

I agree with the mans lawyer. If the dog can't handle a drunk barking how would it handle a crack dealers pit bull ?

A police officer is a police officer even if he walks on 4 legs
