Johnston Dog Owner Arrested after Complaints

web posted July 16, 2014

JOHNSTON Johnston Police have arrested a Edisto Street man after several complaints about his German Sheppard being overly aggressive, charging at and chasing children and even biting a 19-year-old woman as she jogged by the man's house. Leon Joseph Auger, 53, was arrested after yet another complaint on Saturday, July 12, and the dog was seized by police.

When the officer arrived at Auger's home he had to draw his gun on the dog as it charged at him when Auger exited the home. Auger was eventually able to get control of the dog and put him on a chain, police reports state. Auger was then informed of the newest complaint and was placed under arrest.

The officer attempted to use a "catch pole" to get the dog inside of a cage to be seized, but the dog responded violently by biting the pole and freeing himself from its grasp. Auger was allowed to be removed from his handcuffs in order to place the dog in the cage.

Auger was charged with two counts of allowing an animal to run at large/aggressive dog and later released on bond.

When searching court records on the charges, the records showed Auger being arrested again on Tuesday for disorderly conduct by Johnston Police.

The dog is being kept at the animal shelter in Aiken until the case can be heard in Magistrate Court. No court date was available.
