Ohio man arrested for barking at police dog
Dayton Daily News ^ | January 8, 2013

Posted on 01/09/2013 8:43:11 AM PST by karatemom

A 22-year-old spent the night in the Montgomery County Jail Monday after he allegedly taunted a police dog during a traffic stop.

Cameron Dunn is facing a misdemeanor charge of assaulting or harassing police dog.

According to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office report, police K9 Gunner and his deputy handler were called to the intersection of Mad River Road and Hempstead Mews at about 4:50 p.m. Monday to assist in a traffic stop.

Dunn was being detained in the backseat of a cruiser while the dog performed a sniff of his vehicle checking for drugs.

As Gunner walked past the cruiser Dunn began barking at the dog and hitting the window of the cruiser, according to the report.

Gunner started moving towards the cruiser but was pulled away by the deputy.

During the sniff of the car the dog hit on the odor of drugs on the passenger side of the car and marijuana seeds were found on the floorboards of the car.

Deputies booked Dunn into jail Monday evening and his bond has been set at $2,000. He is scheduled to appear in Kettering Municpal Court on Jan. 14.

He’s lucky he wasn’t shot for being ID’d as a vicious canine.

The police department must be very proud to have incarcerated such a dangerous big-time criminal! Bravo!! (Our tax money at work!)

Did the dog write up the police report? Did the news reporter interview the dog?

Sounds like a First Amendment case that could tie up the entire Federal court system for the next thirteen years...

Very misleading headline. Also, he was hitting the window of the police car. Clearly trying to distract the dog and keep it away from his car.

I don’t like this random traffic-stop business, but the arrest was justified.

Perhaps he was just trying to explain to the dog that the car was a rental car and thus, the drugs that the dog smelled really weren’t his.

It doesn’t look like a random traffic stop to me. In an oridnary speeding, etc. case the officer just pulls the driver over and leaves the driver in his car whikle preparing the citation. It’s also very rare for a second unit to be called in for an ordinary stop. Looks like this guy was doing a bit more than just violating traffic laws.

Don't the news media learn early on to stay away from the drug sniffing dogs?

Random stop is unconstitutional, but the article doesn't say it was random, just a traffic stop.
I take that to mean they had probable cause - speeding, bad tail light, etc.

Oinking at a cop is protected free speech as I recall, so woofing at the dog shouldn’t require 13 years of court time. Maybe just 7 or 8.

I don't see that particular "meme" too frequently here. However, lots of us know that a significant number of LEOs are bad, and it doesn't take very many to be a problem.

Source? The article does not mention any traffic or drug charges, only harassing a police dog.

The head line intrigued me, so I read the article. Of course, there was more to the story. I posted it to read the wit and wisdom of my fellow Freepers...although I will be disappointed if we do not see the obligatory picture of Helen Thomas. :)

Is this a good time to point out that these K9 units have untold hours of downtime and pi** public money up the wall with their frequent school PR visits?

Is this also a good time to point out that the K9 handlers have a very high opinion of themselves because they - gasp - can hold a dog leash and wear ludicrous paramilitary gear?

Yes. well of course you are correct.
I happen to like the dogs but yes, they are expensive.

I would have preferred the K-9 Officer let his 4-legged partner handle the situation on his own.

This is from the article:

It is an assumption on my part—but drugs were found in his car.

No one better bark at our house. Mr. Wiggles (8-9 lb) and Dougie (25-30 lb) will bark their (the intruder's) ass off.

Mr. Wiggles and Dougie do not tolerate intruders and/or guests but they will not go to jail for their privilege to secure our premises.

They know their rights and so do I...!

HA!

Oh, yeah, not criticizing you. The rule is to post the actual headline. Not the Freeper’s fault that so many MSM headlines are based on distortions and lies.

Oh, they found SEEDS? Well, of course, that’s big time stuff. I don’t smoke pot and don’t care about it one way or the other, but, for example, I only own used cars. There could be seeds somewhere in my car for all I know. This is stupid.

Indeed; all it takes is for one person to plant seeds in your car or residence and the State has justification to arrest you and demonize you as an EVIIIIL Hardened Criminal.

The War on Drugs isn’t about curtailing drugs, but on increasing the Power and Glory of The State.
