An Erie County grand jury voted to return a Prosecutors Information, charging 36-year-old Daniel Delaney with one count of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals and failure to provide proper sustenance.
Delaney allegedly attached a leashed pit bull terrier named "Gotti" to the trailer hitch of a vehicle , and then drove the vehicle around Buffalo's west side. Gotti suffered abrasions and lost layers of skin from his paws, but is expected to fully recover.
The District Attorney's office says Gotti's injuries were not the kind of serious injury required to support a felony charge, according to medical experts.
