After the blaze erupted early Wednesday morning, Joyner says he escaped the house and realized his dogs were still inside. He then ran back into the home several times, but was overcome with smoke again and again.
Eventually, Joyner found a firefighter's ax on the ground and threw it through the window he believed his dogs were trapped behind. That's when Joyner says sheriff's deputies threw him to the ground and arrested him, bloodying his face.
Thankfully, firefighters saved all three of the dogs, but Joyner now faces one count each of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
