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." Source Article
