Man throws firework at dog walker to scare off pet from NW Side lawn: police
When officers arrived, the man held up another firework to show the type of firework he had thrown, police say.
A man was so angry that a dog was on his Norwood Park lawn that he allegedly threw a firework at the pet and its owner.
The incident unfolded at 1 a.m. Tuesday as Joseph Dye argued with the dog walker about the dog entering his yard, Chicago police spokeswoman Kellie Bartoli said.
Dye then threw a firework at the 30-year-old man and his dog in an attempt to scare off the pet, Bartoli said. No one was hurt.
Officers arrived to the 5600 block of North Nagle Avenue and spoke with Dye, who allegedly held up another firework to show officers the type of firework he had thrown, Bartoli said.
Dye, 47, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of aggravated assault, Bartoli said. He was also issued a city citation for possession of fireworks.
