Corrections Officer Charged After Dog Left in Hot Car Dies
BELLEFONTE — Charges have been filed after a dog died when he was left in a hot car back in July.
Sgt. Chad Holland, 40, of Lock Haven, a Pennsylvania corrections officer, is facing animal cruelty charges, WHTM reports.
Holland is accused of leaving a 2-year-old lab named Totti in a hot car for three hours on July 7 following a training exercise at the Rockview State Prison just outside Bellefonte.
Totti was a drug-detecting dog.
Holland has since been reassigned to a non-canine position at the prison.
