Charges have been dropped against a man who was arrested for breaking the window of a hot car to save the life of a dog trapped inside.
Michael Hammons, a veteran who served in Desert Storm, said that he was simply acting on instinct to free the small pet he discovered alone and panting in an Athens, Georgia, parking lot earlier this month. But when the vehicle's owner returned to find her car had been damaged for the sake of her dog, instead of being grateful she insisted Hammons be arrested.
Hammons was charged with criminal trespassing, but said he would do it all over again to save an animal.
"I knew there'd be consequences, but it didn't matter," he told MyFoxAtlanta.com. "Glass, they make new glass every day, but they could never replace that dog."
