A Hull man was arrested recently after he allegedly took a gun to a neighbor’s house and threatened to shoot their tenant’s dog for getting in his trash.
Stephen Michael Fuller, 53, was charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. According to the incident report, officer Chris Haston went to the neighbor’s house on Sanford Road where the neighbor told him that he rents a mobile home to a woman whose dog keeps going down to Fuller’s house and getting in the trash. That day, he said, Fuller came to his residence with a rifle, cursing, and saying that he was going to kill the dog. He then walked back to his own house. When questioned, Fuller admitted to walking to his neighbor’s house with a gun and that he had been drinking at the time. He was taken to jail.
In another incident, criminal trespass and cruelty to animals was reported at a home on Peachtree Street.
According to the incident report, a woman said a man they had been living with killed a puppy she had been bottle-feeding.
The woman said she left the newborn puppy on a heating pad in her bedroom and evidently their roommate returned at some point while they were gone to retrieve some of his belongings, which were missing when they returned. They found the puppy dead and bloody on the back porch. The house was also left in disarray. Another puppy was also found shut up under the house. A man there said the suspect has some of his belongings in his car, which he has not returned. He also said the man ruined some of his clothes by leaving them in a bathtub where some sewage had backed up.
