Oklahoma police officer pleads in dog poison case

ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) - A police sergeant accused of trying to poison dogs in his neighborhood has been assigned to do community service at the department he works for.

A Carter County judge has ordered 38-year-old Barry Antwine to complete 50 hours of community service at the Ardmore Police Department. He also received a one-year deferred sentence.

Antwine pleaded no contest last week to a charge of laying out poison for domestic animals.

Authorities say Antwine put ethylene glycol in a container outside his home. The chemical found in antifreeze and brake fluid has a sweet taste and can be fatal if swallowed.

It's unclear if any dogs were harmed.

Ardmore City Jennifer O'Steen told the Oklahoman Tuesday that Antwine is still an employee.

Antwine didn't return a call for comment by the newspaper.
