According to an Iowa City police complaint, an officer witnessed (a 31-year-old man) walking a dog near the 1100 block of Mormon Trek Boulevard at about 1:40 p.m. Thursday when the dog defecated on a lawn and (he) walked away without picking it up. The officer attempted to make contact with (the man) as he walked into his garage and he became agitated and began yelling at the officer, according to police. Police say (the man) said the officer could not enter his garage and refused repeated requests to provide identification until he told he was going to be arrested.The man from Newton was charged with interference with official acts, which is a simple misdemeanor, and was also received a violation for animal defecating on another's property.
It is rare that I don't pick up after Nero or Ms. Lion. My neighbors seem to appreciate this.
