The New London man who was cited after his pit bull attacked an elderly resident downtown is taking his case to trial.

Instead of paying the $85 dog-at-large ticket, a minor misdemeanor, Aaron Hyde, 34, is scheduled to appear for a court trial in Norwalk Municipal Court on Tuesday, according to court records.

He pleaded not guilty to the criminal charge at an arraignment hearing on July 29.

“I don’t believe it was my dog. That’s why I’m taking it to court,” Hyde said during an interview Sunday.

Funny he clamed the dog when it happened or he never would have got the ticket. Sounds like his dogs are always loose. Just a bad pet owner. I think he needs them taken away He should be on some sort of watch list for dog and get regular visits from the dog warden.I read some where he had 3 and one is in need of medical attention.

One of them does get loose from time to time and some one is always chasing it around the neighborhood trying to catch it. The same with their neighbors dog. Always getting loose and the kids chasing it around the neighborhood.
