Pet owner whose dogs fatally attacked a woman's dog arrested

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -- Nathaniel Pettiford Junior, 42, was arrested Thursday evening after an arrest warrant was granted. Pettiford is charged with culpable negligence and animal cruelty.

The arrest report for Pettiford shows this was not the first time his dogs have gotten out of the house and attacked other dogs or been a problem to other people.

There have been three documented incidents prior to the one last month. In September, Pettiford's dogs fatally attacked Linda Swinburn's dog, Bella. Pettiford is currently being held in the Alachua County jail.
