A 26-year-old Canyon Country resident was detained on suspicion of violating a restraining order after residents called the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station to respond to a man yelling at their family dog, according to Natalie Arriaga, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
According to Arriaga, deputies responded to a call for service on the 18200 block of Sandy Drive in Canyon Country at approximately 9 a.m., where they learned that the man yelling at the family’s dog had an active restraining order against him.
“Upon arrival, deputies learned it was only a male yelling at the family dog. However, deputies identified the male to have an active court order restraining him from a female who lived at the residence,” wrote Arriaga in a prepared statement.
The man was detained and taken to the SCV Sheriff’s Station and held in lieu of $20,000 bail. Arriaga stated the man was released on bond.
