An Ohio man was charged with a misdemeanor for barking at a police dog.
Ryan James Stephens, 25, was charged with teasing a police dog in Mason, according to the Associated Press.
Officer Bradley Walker saw Stephens barking and hissing at Walker's K-9 officer, Timber, about 2 inches away from the back window of the police car after Walker was responding to a crash at the Mason Pub, in a MSNBC story.
Walker suspected Stephens to be intoxicated because he smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred.
When Walker asked Stephens why he was barking at the dog, Stephens replied, "He started it. He was harassing me."
Stephens is set to appear in municipal court on April 21 for misdemeanor of willfully teasing a police K-9 officer.
