Hot Springs Man Arrested After Animal Control Arrives To Pick Up His Dog

A Hot Springs man was arrested by Garland County deputies after an altercation over his dog.

Bobby Denham, 51, of 161 Rivermist Pt in Hot Springs was arrested by deputies.

That’s according to the Garland County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the report, Deputy McConnell responded to a Vicious Animal complaint on Rivermist Pt.   As the deputy arrived, Officer McConnell stated that a dog chased his unit and would not let him out of his vehicle. The dog finally went back next door.

Deputy McConnell was able to get out and the complainant was able to come outside. While taking the report, McConnell stated the dog would come in their yard and then run back to it’s home. The complainant stated that is where the dog lives. McConnell contacted Animal Control about the dog. The owner of the dog, Bobby Denham, came outside and tried to retrieve the animal but could not.

The suspect kept cursing at the deputy and saying the dog is ok and he would put the animal in the house. Animal Control arrived on the scene. Deputy McConnell asked the suspect to stop cursing several times. McConnell observed a strong odor of intoxication coming from his breath and slurred speech. The suspect would run in front of Animal control personnel cursing and refusing to cooperate.

The suspect was then placed into custody. Animal Control was then allowed to take the dog into custody without further incident.

Denham was transported to the detention center and charged with Public Intoxication, Disorderly Conduct and Vicious Animal.
