Not Quite Man Bites Dog, but Man Barks at Dog – Gets Prosecuted!

Here's one of those stories that have to be seen to be believed.

A US man has gotten himself in trouble with the law for, wait for it, barking at a dog.

MSNBC reports:

According to a police report, Officer Bradley Walker was responding to a crash at the Mason Pub early Sunday morning when his K-9 officer, Timber, began barking.

Walker said he observed 25-year-old Ryan Stephens with his face about 2 inches from the rear window of the police vehicle, barking and hissing at Timber.

When Walker questioned Stephens about why he was barking at the dog, Stephens replied, "He started it. He was harassing me."

Walker said he believed Stephens was intoxicated because he smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred.

Stephens is to appear April 21 in municipal court on a misdemeanor citation of willfully teasing a police K-9 officer.

Walker said it's dangerous to incite the dogs while they're locked inside the vehicle.
