The Muskogee County District Attorney’s office has filed a charge against a man whose two pit bulls are accused of attacking a neighbor.
Ronnie Casey, Jr. faces a misdemeanor charge of failure to restrain a dangerous dog. If convicted, he faces a maximum of one year in jail and/or a fine up to $5,000.
Glenn Boulet, Sr. was attacked by the two pit bulls on July 14th. Boulet says he was sitting on his porch when he saw one of the dogs approach a boy. Boulet got the boy onto the porch, but the dog attacked. He says the second dog escaped from the gated yard and joined in the attack.
Boulet struggled with the dogs for at least ten minutes. He suffered severe injuries to his face, legs, arms and stomach. He spent a month in a hospital and will still require plastic surgery to repair his facial wounds.
Casey has not been arrested.
