Man avoids prison time for a pit bull attack, dog to be put down

Posted on October 4th, 2013 No Comments

On September 30, four counts of assault charges were dismissed against a man who had his dog attack another man, but his pit bull was ordered to be put down.

John P. LeBeau, 29, of Auburn, was sentenced to five years of probation, with a postponed 300-day prison sentence, and was ordered to participate in the Swift and Sure Sanctions Probation Program. LeBeau did not contest several charges that include one count of serious injury caused by a dangerous animal. A second charge was dismissed, along with a count of assault less than murder, aggravated assault, and assault with a dangerous weapon.

LaBeau and Drew D. Whaley, 24, were fighting on the floor of LeBeau’s house on the midnight of September 22 and had his pit bull Rueger attacked Whaley. The dog also bit two bystanders and LeBeau himself.

Whaley was treated at the hospital for bite wounds. He later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and battery.
