Ardmore Police Officer Makes Court Appearance

Posted:
ARDMORE, OK -- An Ardmore police officer accused of poisoning neighborhood pets appeared in a Carter County courtroom this afternoon.

The court clerk's office says Sergeant Barry Antwine entered a plea of not guilty to the charge of poisoning a domestic animal.

The investigation began back in April when a complaint was filed by one of Antwine's neighbors, claiming he had poisoned several dogs and say at least six dogs died.

A veterinarian we spoke with said he tried to save two of the dogs but both died from antifreeze poisoning.

Sergeant Antwine is on paid administrative leave where the police chief Ken Grace says he will remain until this case is resolved.

Antwine is scheduled to be in court again in early August.
