• A Dangerous Dog charge lodged against Robert Giustino of Forest Lake Rd., Chestertown, was dropped after a special hearing under the state Agriculture law.
Giustino's puppy stole a bone from his grandson's puppy, so his grandson, a pre-schooler, bit Giustino's puppy and called it a "bad boy" and the puppy bit the youngster back, prompting the charge. The young boy was treated at the Warrensburg Health Center and later by Glens Falls Hospital, and the Warrensburg Dog Warden was notified.
After hearing the testimony of the pre-schooler and seeing the dog, Justice Mindy Fisk determined the dog was not dangerous, and dismissed the charge.
• Eric Millington, 35 of Bakers Mills was arraigned on the Misdemeanor charges of DWI and Fugitive from Justice as well as Unlicensed Driver, Unregistered Motor Vehicle and Failure to Keep Right.

Diamond's case was adjourned to Nov. 4.
