BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge man has been arrested on charges he ordered his pit bulls to attack when workers tried to turn off his electricity.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2aB4kQl ) that two Entergy employees were accompanied by two sheriff’s deputies Tuesday when 47-year-old Michael Barcia allegedly screamed a command just before the dogs ran toward one of the deputies.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office says that deputy used a stun gun on one of the dogs, causing both of them to retreat.

Barcia was jailed on charges that include aggravated assault and public intimidation.

A sheriff’s office report says Barcia also had instructed his dogs to attack Entergy employees during a previous attempt to shut off his electricity.
