Austin, Texas - An Austin woman who police say threw dog feces at a man she accused of not picking up after his pet was charged with aggravated assault this week.
Rebecca Trammell, 46, confronted the man at her apartment’s dog park in Northwest Austin on Tuesday, picked up dog feces and threw it at him, according to the affidavit for her arrest.
She admitted to police that she then picked up a jagged, 6-inch rock and threw it at the man, missing him, the affidavit says. Next, she spat in his face, the affidavit says.
Trammell told police that she then wanted to grab another man’s dog at the park because she said it wasn’t on a leash, according to the affidavit. When the man put himself between Trammell and his dog, she grabbed his leash, pulling it toward her and cutting the man’s right hand.f
The second man told police he witnessed Trammell throwing the dog feces at the first man, and that when she told the man to pick up his dog’s feces he yelled back that he was getting a bag.
Jail records show Trammell was still in custody Thursday evening. She also faces a misdemeanor charge of assault causing bodily injury.
Her bail is set at $12,000.
