A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
A Toledo man was arrested Thursday after police say he called 911 eight times to complain about his neighbor's barking Shih Tzu.
Timothy J. Henneman Sr. was arrested on two charges after police say he threatened to shoot the dog and became belligerent with officers.
Police say after calling 911 more than five times in a few minutes, Henneman told an operator he "would take care of the dog myself; I will just shoot it."
Police responded to Henneman's home in the 700 block of Redwood Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Thursday. When they arrived and knocked on the door, police say Henneman was heard tell his wife to "get the camera recording honey, for when they take me to jail."
Police say when Henneman came outside, he immediately began to yell at officers, saying "[I called] eight times and I still had to wait too long for you guys." When asked to calm down, police say Henneman said "I did tell 911 I was going to shoot the dog because I have to sleep."
Officers again asked Henneman to quiet down, to which he said "I am not [expletive] screaming, I am just upset," according to a police report.
It was at that point officers placed Henneman under arrest. He has been charged with disorderly conduct and or disturbance and false use or unlawful disclosure of information, both fourth degree misdemeanors. The false use charge relates to Mr. Henneman's alleged misuse of the 911 system.
After taking Henneman into custody police spoke with the owner of the Shih Tzu, named snowball. The woman said she was unaware the dog was causing any problems. Police say she apologized before taking the pet inside her home.
Henneman was booked into the Lucas County Jail.
Neighbors say they think it was wrong for police to arrest Henneman.
"When I saw who was being arrested and heard why they were arresting him, it really bothered me considering he does get up and go to work everyday and he was really just trying to get an honest night's sleep," said neighbor Christa Brownfield. "It was a noise complaint. That's what we're taught to do is call 911," said another.
Snowball's owner, who did not want to be named, said she thinks there is a better way to handle a barking dog than calling 911.
"I think he should have just went about it in an adult way. Come over here, knock on the door say 'your dog is disturbing.' He could have gone about it in a different way," the owner said.
