Another Arrest Made In Nashville Dog Fighting Raid

CREATED Apr 28, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Officers have made another arrest in the alleged dog-fighting ring uncovered behind a Davidson County home.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department had already arrested 34-year-old Michael Davis. Monday they also took Davis’ wife, 35-year-old Brandy Harper, into custody.

Harper owned the property on Pewitt Road where over two dozen dogs were found. She was charged with one count of felony animal fighting and three counts for misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Investigators found treadmills, syringes containing steroids, and a breeding stand on the property.

The dogs removed from the home were being cared for by Metro Animal Care and Control.

Davis was charged Friday with 27 counts of felony animal fighting and three counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty. He was already in custody on unrelated drug charges.

The raid on Pewitt Road was the result of an investigation into a major heroin and cocaine trafficking organization in the city. While officers were at his home executing a drug search, they discovered the dogs. Two new search warrants for dog fighting were eventually executed.
