They’ve got a mean ol dog, you know what I’m saying? I take this pretty serious, the man tells the AP. He said he wanted the K-9 officer charged with several different felony accounts.

The lawsuit, which was also filed against police investigators, the local sheriff, and a judge, claims that the search of the mans furniture and business was illegal. It seeks $450,000 in damages.
