Broome County Sheriff officials say 37 year old Christina Simpson apparently took the puppy and locked herself in a car at a home on Route 26 in the Town of Maine September 26 after she apparently had been in a domestic dispute with the dog’s owner.

The man jumped onto the hood of the car and Simpson allegedly began to drive before hitting the brakes, throwing the man onto the road. He reportedly suffered a leg injury.

Simpson was found the next day and arrested on the misdemeanor count.

She has been ordered to appear in Town of Maine Court at a later date.
