A Hopkinsville man will have to appear in court later this month on charges that he sprayed a dog confined to a pen in the face with bug spray.
Christian County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andre Radford served a criminal summons to 79-year old Frank Arvin of 3140 Butler Road Thursday afternoon.
The summons alleges that Arvin admitted to spraying a German Shepherd with Raid bug spray Tuesday inside a neighbor’s back yard. The dog is in an enclosed fence and police say Arvin reached inside to spray the animal in the face.
The dog’s owner is identified as Chris Knight and a witness told him about seeing the incident. Arvin will face cruelty to animal charges in district court May 23rd.
