THE DOG ATTACK HAPPENED IN JULY OF 2021 DO YOU REMEMBER?
REYES-SERRANO TOLD POLICE HIS DOGS ATTACKED THE DOG FIRST
WHILE OUT ON BAIL HE WAS ARRESTED IN A DIFFERENT CASE
While out on bail on the animal cruelty case Reyes-Serrano was arrested in June of last year on an assault charge. Police were called to his home for a domestic violence incident. When police arrived at the home he had fled. They later found him on the roof of the home where he grabbed an electrical wire. Police called the power company and when a worker tried to turn off the power police say Reyes-Serrano threatened the worker with the live electrical wire. Police eventually used less-lethal weapons to arrest Reyes-Serrano, take him off the roof and place him in jail. Now he's going to spend the next five years in prison.
