Former County Fire Chief Found Guilty of Beating Puppy
Back in November 2008, Glynn Johnson, a former LA County Assistant Fire Chief, was accused of beating a puppy with his fists and a 12-pound rock after he was bit. He was returning the canine back to neighbors in his Riverside County neighborhood when the incident happened. Karley, a mixed breed shepherd, was later euthanized. Johnson and neighbors had a long-standing feud over various issues and animal groups pressured the District Attorney to prosecute Johnson, who was found guilty of animal cruelty and using a deadly weapon today, according to the LA Times. Lawyers for Johnson said that, six months-old or not, Karley was big enough to do damage.
