CHATSWORTH, GA (Times Free Press) -
A 68-year-old Chatsworth, Ga., man who put a bullet through a local dog when it stepped on his lawn has been jailed.
James Yaughn has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and discharging a firearm near a road, records show. Records show Deputy Diane Franklin passed by Yaughn's trailer and saw him dragging a bleeding animal across his yard.
But neighbors say this isn't the first time Yaughn has shot at pet dogs, critters and even the sides of houses.
Shirley Bias has a bullet in the wall of her bedroom where she said Yaughn supposedly shot at an opossum and missed. Two other shots shattered her bathroom window and hit her son's car, she said.
