A Kansas man is facing a charge of animal cruelty charges after police say he tried to use a dog as a weapon.
An officer stopped the suspect Sunday night after calls that a suspicious person had been seen in the area. The officer found 26-year-old Michael Rush walking a dog through people's backyards.
After trying to talk to him, the officer says Rush swung the dog on a leash at him.
The incident was caught on the officer's dashcam.
