Jackson Man Could Face Criminal Charges After Saving a Dog
It was a sweltering hot day, and Alex Soper says he didn't think twice about breaking a car window to save a puppy that was cooking inside a hot vehicle. But now the Jackson, Michigan man could face charges.
"It was in the heat of the moment. This lady was distressed. She tells me everything and I look in there. There's this helpless dog again and it had to be done. Somebody has to do it whether it was me or the next person that walked up behind me. Someone was going to end up doing it."
Lansing TV station WLNS reports that leaving a dog in a hot car is illegal, but so is breaking someone's window. Unless the county prosecutor's office decides otherwise, Soper could face criminal charges.
