Who let the dogs out? Intoxicated neighbor accused

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:18 a.m. HST, May 19, 2013

LONDON, Ky. » Who let the dogs out? An eastern Kentucky sheriff says it was an intoxicated neighbor.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root says in a statement that a 47-year-old London woman told deputies she used a blanket to break the glass on her neighbor's front door so she could let two small dogs out of the residence.

The statement says Regina Napier was "highly intoxicated on controlled substances" on Friday evening when the incident occurred. Jail records show she is charged with burglary and public intoxication, but they don't indicate whether she has an attorney.

There was no word on why someone let the dogs out.

probably the 2 dogs were barking every minute and driving the lady nuts, because the owner wasn't home and so she got mad and let the dogs out by smashing the front door glass. I guess some people just can't ignore your neighbors barking dogs.

If people cannot control their dogs and insure that they are not a nuisance, they should not have dogs.

No where in the article did it say the dogs were out of control or a nuisance.

I agree bender, but there is really nothing else to debate about in this poorly researched article so the "dog nuisance" issue is as good as any to talk about......and the other readers are picking up on the subject.

So......I will add my own 2 cents, most serial yapper dogs suffer from separation anxiety and should be given up to homes or farms where they can roam free with others, or they should be euthanized. The anxiety is easily identified and shows symptoms very early on before you get really attached to the animal. That is the time the owner should remove the pet one way or the other. Buy people are generally selfish in nature and don't care about neighbors.

OK. Same thing happened in Manoa yesterday. Why is the SA reporting on this Kentucky incident and not Manoa? They are too lazy to look in their own back yard for stories and too often depend upon AP for lame stories like this.
