Snippet from our Local Paper.

MASON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio man charged with teasing a police dog by barking at it says a city law violates free speech.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the attorney for 25-year-old Ryan James Stephens says his client was not striking the animal in suburban Mason. Lawyer Jim Hardin says barking may not be seen as intelligent speech but is “still speech.” He questions the validity of a city law that bars taunting police dogs.

A police officer investigating a car crash at a pub on April 3 reported he heard the dog barking uncontrollably. The officer said he found Stephens making barking noises and hissing at a dog inside the police car.

The officer's report quoted Stephens as saying “the dog started it” and said the man appeared highly intoxicated.

Re: Snippet from our Local Paper.

Don't know what is funnier, the fact he was doing it or him saying "The Dog started it"

Re: Snippet from our Local Paper.

I don't know that wasting valuable time and tax payers money on charging him is in the best public interest tho... its a ridiculous story, and a ridiculous man, doing a stupid and inciteful thing. He should have gotten a hefty fine imho.

Silly man! Silly premise! Silly argument! Not you guys, the idiot who barked at the dog.

Throw him and the dog in a cage and let them fight it out.
