The shooting of Mr. Bear did not appear in any arrest report, according to AL.com. It was recorded on De Jong's body camera. The footage was looked at by Chief Deputy Dave Jernigan and a review board which determined the shooting was within policy.
"(De Jong) did the right thing," Jernigan told AL.com.
The video, and any mention of Mr. Bear was not allowed during Junkins' trial, where he was found not guilty for disorderly conduct for obstructing traffic Wednesday.
De Jong still has not apologized to Junkins for shooting his dog.
