A county deputy at 601 Walnut St. said a group was walking along the street preaching.

A woman on E. 14th Street stated that earlier in the morning she had left her dogs out in the fenced-in yard  prior to taking her mother to work. She said after taking her mother, she arrived home and observed the neighbors throwing items in the yard at the dog. No injuries occurred to the dog from the items being thrown at it. While the officer was present the dog was still in the yard and was barking loudly to the point the officer was having difficulty communicating with the woman regarding the incident. The neighbors said they have been having an ongoing issue with the loud barking of the dog. One said at times they have thrown items into the yard in an attempt to keep the dog from barking. They said the loud dog barking is a daily occurrence and at times begins as early as 4:30 a.m. The officer "discussed with the woman about the loudness and times of the dog barking and the Chattanooga City noise ordinance regarding the dog's noise being a nuisance. I had also discussed with the neighbors regarding the appropriateness of handling the loud barking of their neighbor's dog. All parties were warned of their conduct and the potential for both sides to be cited, neither of which wished to be cited for their participation in the incident."

It can be argued ... (click for more)
