The owner of a Rottweiler that was shot and killed by Hawthorne police in July was charged Tuesday with multiple felonies stemming from video taken of the incident.
Leon Cordell Rosby, 52, was arraigned Tuesday on two counts of dissuading a witness from prosecuting a crime, intimidation of witness and making criminal threats, and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. He plead not guilty to all counts.
Mark Geragos, Rosby’s attorney, told KNX1070′s Claudia Peschiutta the police are out for revenge after Rosby filed a complaint alleging he was beat up by Hawthorne police last year.
