A dog owner in Georgia tried to leave with his dog, which was impounded by animal control, without paying the fees. But an animal control officer tried to stop him from leaving, and she ended up being dragged for nearly two miles while holding onto the man’s car hood.
Larry Henderson was told he owed $85 in impound and boarding fees to pick up his dog. The dog was picked up as a stray. Henderson refused to pay the fees and grabbed his dog.
Animal control officer Christy Champagne tried to stop him by sitting on his car hood. As he drove off, she was forced to hold onto the hood, so she wouldn’t fall off. Henderson drove for 1.7 miles with Champagne on the hood of his car before police officers stopped him.
Authorities said Henderson was charged with reckless conduct and simple battery.
Champagne said she is fine except for a sore arm.
