According to the report filed with the Albany Police Department, Officer Antoine Jones stands at 6 feet tall and weighs nearly 300 pounds. The responding officer quoted Jones in the report saying, “He stated that he gave the dog verbal commands to get back but the dog continued to come towards him in an aggressive manner so he fired one shot at the dog using his duty weapon.”
Shelton says she can’t understand why a man of his size would react that way to such a little dog and wants to know why he didn’t make a kicking motion or stomp his foot to show that he didn’t want Patches near him.
Another “hero in uniform.”
