    A western Pennsylvania man has been charged with inciting Chaos.

    That's the name of a police dog officers say was taunted by 26-year-old James Paul Andrews, of Cranberry Township, after the man was stopped at a drunken-driving checkpoint about 2:40 a.m. Sept. 15.

    Online court records don't list an attorney for Andrews who was allegedly "barking, hissing and growling" at the dog, according to the K-9's handler, Evan City police Sgt. Don Myers.

    The Butler Eagle reports Cranberry Township police filed the charge on Monday — which is a felony carrying up to seven years in prison — along with drunken driving and other charges.

    Township Sgt. Chuck Mascellino says Myers and Chaos were assisting with the checkpoint when Andrews allegedly became irritated and began barking at the dog.
