PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh-area man accused of fighting with police before his son fatally stabbed a K-9 and was killed by officers has been arrested again.

Police say Bruce Kelley Sr. was arrested around 7 p.m. Sunday after an officer spotted him on a busway platform. A judge last week ordered him to remain off Port Authority property.

The 60-year-old is in jail facing charges including possessing a prohibited weapon.

A district judge on Thursday threw out one of two aggravated assault charges that Kelley Sr. faced for the fracas on Jan. 31.

A defense attorney says Kelley is innocent.

Police say he punched an officer trying to arrest his 37-year-old son.

When stun guns failed to subdue Kelley’s son, they deployed a dog, which Kelley Jr. killed, prompting police to shoot him.

The district attorney is reviewing whether the dog was used properly.
