RACINE, Wis. (AP) - A more than 3½ hour standoff in Racine ended with the man arrested and a dog shot and killed.

Forty-nine-year-old Kim Polk tells The Journal Times (https://bit.ly/1pg5eYk) the confrontation started after the man’s dog had a bowel movement in her yard while she was using a leaf blower.

When she asked the man to dispose of it, he allegedly kicked it into leaves and then threatened to use a bow and arrow on her and her dog.

She says her husband ended up going to the man’s house, they argued and the other man allegedly got a machete. That’s when Polk had her daughter call 911.

Police Sgt. Sam Stulo confirmed a dog was shot after officers advanced on the house.
