A stink over dog doo

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (AP) — Three men face assault charges after they allegedly attacked an off-duty police officer in a dispute over dog waste. Police said brothers Matthew Stauffer, 33, and Daniel Stauffer, 31, attacked police Officer John Doll earlier this month.

Investigators said the Stauffers confronted Doll about his dog’s waste, even though Doll had already bagged it. According to court documents, Doll identified himself as an off-duty officer and got both men to the ground before a third man attacked him.

Police charged the Stauffers and 25-year-old Noah Coburn with aggravated assault, conspiracy and public drunkeness.

Phone listings for all three suspects were not available Wednesday.

Mother charged for phony letter
PADUCAH, Kentucky (AP) — A western Kentucky woman’s attempt to get her son out of jail on bond came undone over a misspelling. The Paducah Sun reported court officials became suspicious when the 44-year-old mother presented a letter allegedly from Wagner Moving and Storage. The woman knew bond for her son would be lowered if he had written proof of a job.

But the company name was misspelled and when investigators checked, they learned the woman had asked for such a letter from the company and had been denied.
