02/01/11 Thursday morning 46 year old Todd Wagoner, who is listed as homeless from Plymouth was released from the Marshall County Jail for time served after a plea deal was reached in court.
Wagoner was arrested on January 13th after city police received a complaint of his dog being tied up outside a Plymouth business. Officers attempted to confiscate his wolf hybrid dog had been left unattended outside the Mayflower Tavern on West Jefferson Street about 5:30 p.m. on the 13th. As police were attempting to assist the Humane Society in taking the dog Wagoner exited the tavern. Officers had asked him to go back inside but he was eventually arrested for public intoxication.
On Thursday Todd Wagoner plead guilty to a charge of public intoxication and the charge of failure to keep his wolf hybrid under control was dismissed.
An incident last June caused the City of Plymouth to petition in Superior Court #1 to have the animal euthanized because it was vicious. Judge Bowen’s ruling was that the dog was not vicious but ordered Mr. Wagoner to keep the dog on a leash of no more than 8 feet long and that the animal must be attend to at all times while in public.
The City of Plymouth could still file a petition for contempt of court against Wagoner.
Thursday afternoon Mr. Wagoner went to Marshall County Humane Society and paid his bill of $310 to have his dog released. He was seen walking back to town with the dog on a leash. On Friday he was seen in the area between Wal-Mart and Lowes panhandling.
