  • Cops bust Ohio man for barking at police dog; man insists 'dog started it'

    Cops have charged a drunken Ohio man with taunting a poor police dog by barking in its face.

    Officers had been investigating a car accident Sunday at a bar in Mason, Ohio, when they heard their K9 partner - named Timber - barking from inside a police cruiser.

    When they returned to the car they found a highly intoxicated Ryan James Stephens, 25, barking and hissing at the pooch through the window.

    "Timber responded as trained and started to bark," Officer Bradley Walker wrote in his report.

    Stephens insisted, "The dog started it."

    He was given a ticket and released to the custody of a bar employee who drove him home.
    I heard that he told the bar employee he had a ruff night!

    It's illegal to bark at a dog?

      Did he get a barking ticket?

        I don't believe that's illegal. He was probably cited for public intoxication or something of that nature.

          Some states have an 'annoying a police dog' section in their penal code....which another article stated is what he was arrested for.

                  In Michigan it is illegal to harass a police dog...we had a drunk do the same to one of our k9's and he was given a ride to jail by a deputy instead of a citation and a ride home.

                    He's just getting that insanity defense started early. Oh, and even if the dog started it, I gaurantee you he will finish it too.

                      The irony, is that the story gives the upper hand to the dog. As regards IQ, the dog did what he was trained to do and Mr. Stephens.....well you get the picture.

                        Maybe the Officers were wrong about this, maybe the guy was giving a McGruff some tips on illegal activity in the area.

                          I believe we're getting one this legislative session. Should take effect September 1.

                              Yea, the article is somewhat funny, but I really don't see the point. He made the dog bark while he was in the back of the car... big deal. I would understand if the intent was to cause injury to the dog. I guess I should look up the wording for one of these statutes because I must be missing something
