Woman could land in jail over dog waste
AUSTIN, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An out of the ordinary case in Texas is another reason that pet owners should definitely remember to scoop their poop.
A woman is facing felony charges after attacking her neighbors with dog poop and a rock.
It happened at a dog park at an apartment complex in Austin.
Police say 46-year-old Rebecca Trammell admitted to hitting a man with dog waste, spitting in his face, and barely missing him with a 6-inch rock.
She reportedly told police she was sick of people not cleaning up after their pets.
"I think that's a little bit much, a little bit overboard," said Jay Willingham, another dog owner in the area. "But I guess I can understand the frustration though."
If convicted, Trammell faces two to 20 years behind bars, and a possible $10,000 fine.
