POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) -

Authorities in Randolph County tased one dog and shot and killed another after a man sicced them on police.

The Pocahontas Police Department was dispatched to a home on S. Pratt Street around 10 o'clock Monday night in reference to Brandon Provow yelling at his neighbor.

When they arrived, Provow ran into his house. Police made contact with the neighbor, who said Provow was trying to talk to him because he's a therapist.

Police left the scene but they were called back 20 minutes later because Provow was now threatening to kill his neighbor.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Office also responded to the scene. While attempting to speak with Provow, he allegedly told them he was going to kill them.

"I then heard Brandon say something about his dogs," an incident report states. "Then I saw two dogs running into the front yard area from the carport and they were barking."

Sheriff Gary Tribble told Region 8 News he shot one dog who was charging at him. He said he did so to protect himself and the next door neighbor who was standing beside him.

"All I had on my person to protect myself was my side arm [pistol] at the time it occurred," Sheriff Tribble said.

A Pocahontas police officer tased the other dog.

"Brandon then came back out on the carport yelling out that he was going to kill all of us," a police report states.

He was placed under arrest a short time later.

The dogs, a lab, and a pit bull were taken to Animal Control.

Provow was charged with terroristic threatening, aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and fleeing on foot.

Provow appeared in Randolph County District Court on Wednesday where he was charged with two felonies and three misdemeanors including cruelty to animals.

His bond was set at $20,000.
