Ardmore Police Officer Accused of Poisoning Neighborhood Dogs is Back on the Job

Posted:
CARTER COUNTY -- An Ardmore police officer accused of poisoning neighborhood dogs was back on the job, Monday.


Chief Ken Grace confirmed Monday that Sergeant Barry Antwine is back at work but added that he's working "light duty" which means he's doing office work until the case is resolved. 


Back in early April dog owners in an Ardmore neighborhood said several dogs died mysteriously. One veterinarian we talked to said two of the dogs he had to put down at his hospital "had suffered from anti-freeze poisoning". 


Antwine was put on paid administrative leave and in may the district attorney's office charged him with "laying out poison for domestic animals" a misdemeanor. His next court appearance is scheduled for early august.
