An Ardmore police officer faces charges after investigators say he tried to poison dogs in his neighborhood.
Ardmore police sergeant Barry Antwine was charged Wednesday afternoon with "laying out poison for domestic animals"-- a misdemeanor.
Prosecutors say Antwine put a substance -- possibly anti-freeze -- in a bowl in front of his house in early April.
The investigation began when a complaint was filed by a neighbor claiming Antwine had poisoned several dogs. Officers say at least six dogs died. A vet we spoke to said he treated two dogs that died after ingesting anti-freeze.
On April 7, Antwine was put on paid administrative leave pending the investigation. Chief Ken Grace says he'll remain on leave until the case is resolved.
Antwine is scheduled to be in court June 11.
That's disgusting. There's a special place in hell for people like that. It's called Ardmore.
Seriously, what a prick. I hope he gets scabies, herpes and rabies. Hell, throw in a tick disease, too.
Also, how is this asshole only being charged with a misdemeanor? He tried to poison other dogs! They should lock him in the angry pit bull cage at the pound before the Eagle's hire him as their new security director.
