TX: Followup; No Bill for man who shot Aggressive dog in dog Park
HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston-area man who was facing a charge of animal cruelty after he shot and killed a Staffordshire bull terrier at a dog park will not be prosecuted.
A Harris County grand jury on Monday declined to indict 27-year-old Joseph Potts.
Authorities say Potts, who is a concealed hand gun license owner, shot a 2-year-old bull terrier named Diesel at the Bay Area Dog Park in January. Potts told police that the dog was aggressive toward him, his wife and their two pets.
