Man Arrested for Trying to Break in and take Dog from Pound

A man, reportedly intoxicated, tried to break into animal control after officers took his dog away.

Early Thursday morning Timothy Parkinson was arrested for outstanding warrants and having an open container of alcohol. Animal control officers showed up and took his dog for safekeeping.

Later in the morning, around 7:30 a.m., Parkinson had been released from jail and drove onto the sidewalk and blocked the entrance to the Sacramento City Animal Care Services building along Front Street. Cops say he then started yelling and banging on the door, breaking a lower window pane.

Cops were called and arrested Parkinson again, this time for vandalism and DUI.

Would you do the same if police took your pet away?
