Police charged a Cranberry man on Monday for allegedly barking at a police dog at a sobriety checkpoint.

James Paul Andrews, 26, was charged with taunting a police animal, a third-degree felony, drunken driving and driving without a license.

Police said he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint run by the Butler County DUI Task Force at about 2:40 a.m. on Sept. 15. Andrews refused to perform a field sobriety test and was detained, Evans City police Sgt. Don Meyers said.

Meyers was with his police dog, a 7-year-old German shepherd named Chaos.

Andrews stated he was afraid of dogs and asked Meyers to put the dog away. He then proceeded to “growl, hiss and bark” at the dog, even after he had been warned not to, Meyers said.
