FREMONT — Felony dog fighting charges were recently submitted to a grand jury for review after a witness told police he saw an organized dog fight take place at a local residence.
Fremont police received a 9-1-1 call Nov. 2 stating a dog attacked another dog at a residence in the 800 block of Ewing Street. Officers arrived to the residence and found a black and white pit bull restrained outside and a white boxer inside.
Police interviewed a witness the next day who said one of the residents invited him over to show him “something cool,” according to the report. The man accompanied the resident to the second floor of the house where he found two dogs attacking each other in a bedroom. The witnesses told police he observed dollar bills laying on the floor in the bedroom where the fight took place.
