Grand Jury To Hear Case Against Man Accused Of Running Dog Fighting Ring

CREATED May 8, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The case against a man accused of running a dog fighting ring in Nashville will go before a grand jury.

Michael Davis waived his right to appear in court Thursday morning for a preliminary hearing. He also gave up his rights to the dogs.

Davis faces more than 30 counts in connection with the dozens of dogs taken from this home along Pewitt Road last month. Investigators also found syringes with suspected steroids, treadmills, and a breeding stand.

Davis' wife Brandy J. Harper was also arrested on animal cruelty charges, but the state has decided not to pursue the charges against her.

Meanwhile, the two animal control officers who were placed on paid leave because of this case went back to work Thursday.

Billy Biggs and JD White were placed on administrative during an internal audit into how past complaints of dog fighting at Davis’ home were handled. The Health Department has not yet gotten the findings of that audit.
