An argument between roommates, which began with one man punching a dog in the eye, led to a four-hour standoff with the SWAT team.
Timothy Blevins, 52, punched his roommate’s dog in the eye then pulled a knife on the roommate in the Tremont section of Cleveland. Blevins also threatened police and threw a lamp at his roommate’s car. After his arrest, Blevins tried to break the police cruiser’s back window.
The entire incident took place at 1 am. Blevins was finally taken into custody at 4 am. Both the roommate and dog escaped with minimal injuries. The dog has a swollen eye but will be fine.
Police still have no idea what sparked the entire fight but sometimes dogs can say some real dickish things so…
