Man Barks at Police Dog...and Guess How Much Prison Time He's Facing Because of It

Crime

"Barking, hissing and growling."

There's a saying in journalism that when a dog bites a man, it's not news, but when a man bites a dog, it's news.

So when a man barks at a police dog -- and gets charged with "inciting chaos" -- and the police dog's name is actually "Chaos"...you get the idea.

James Paul Andrews, 26, of Cranberry Township, Pa., was allegedly "barking, hissing and growling" at Chaos after he was stopped at a drunk-driving checkpoint around 2:40 a.m. Sept. 15, the dog's handler, Evan City police Sgt. Don Myers, said.

Police said Andrews became irritated and started barking at the K-9 at the checkpoint, according to the Associated Press.

Turns out "inciting chaos" is no joke -- it's a felony that carries up to seven years in prison, in addition to drunk driving and other charges Andrews is facing.

In July, a Florida linebacker was also arrested for barking at a police dog, before having his charges dismissed.
