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 Sheriffs 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.
Actually, the man was arrested for a drug violation.......
He’s lucky he wasn’t shot for being ID’d as a vicious canine.
but that doesn’t fit the meme of all police are bad...
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.
Where have I heard this before?
Dog Barks at Man - not news. Man Barks at Dog - News!
One can only hope
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.
Give us a police state!!! Please save us from seeds!!!!
Shoot our pets! Just protect us from vegetation!!!!
Ignore our constitutional rights. Just save us from ourselves!!!!
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?
I agree, although I posted the headline directly from the article.
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.
never bark at a police dog.....
you’re supposed to ‘meow’!
My thoughts exactly! Those evil seeds!!! God forbid!
Sounds like the puke deserved what he got.
