dog weaponPARK CITY, KS – Michael Rush is facing animal cruelty charges after the 26-year-old used a small dog as a weapon against a police officer.

On Sunday night, police were called to a neighborhood after people who lived there called to report a suspicious man walking through backyards and kicking fences.

A responding officer encountered Rush walking a small pug-mix on a leash and “acting erratically.” When the officer tried talking to Rush and asked him to stop, Rush spit at the officer and used the dog’s leash to swing the dog at the officer multiple times.

The officer tried using a stun gun on Rush, as well as pepper spray, but Rush continued to charge the officer until other police arrived and were able to get him under control and into custody.

Rush now faces animal abuse charges as well as battery against a law enforcement officer. The dog was unharmed and is currently at the Wichita Animal Shelter. Park City police say they’ll do everything they can to make sure the dog finds a safe home and does not go back to Rush.

We’ve had several stories regarding people using animals as weapons, including a man in Florida who beat his girlfriend with a puppy, and a man in Massachusetts who beat his girlfriend with a python.
