The dog's owner said he did not know how much insect spray his dog ingested, but that he would monitor the pet to determine whether his dog needs treatment from a veterinarian.

According to the report, Charles told police she did not intentionally spray the dog, which happened while she was spraying a spider that spun a web on her fence.

Charles also told police the dogs' owner is a bad neighbor because he killed the grass along the fence line and doesn't clean up his dogs' feces in the yard, the report stated. She also said she would not be interested in mediation.
