Man released vicious dogs to ’cause some excitement’

‘A 34-year-old man released three pit bulls into an Independence neighborhood where they attacked three men because he wanted to “cause some excitement,” prosecutors said in filing criminal charges Friday. [..]

According to documents filed with the county charges, a man who lived next door to the house where the dogs were kept told police that Smith had told him he was planning to release the dogs “to see what kind of trouble he could cause.”

The neighbor, Earl Howard Jr., warned him not to but testified he later saw a window in the house open and the three dogs jump out.

He said he saw Smith at the window, laughing.’
