(STMW) — Eight men have been charged Saturday after authorities broke up a dog fight at an industrial park in south suburban Dolton.
The men were all charged with a felony count of attending or patronizing a dog fight and were being held on bail Sunday, according to a release from the Cook County Sheriff’s office. They are all expected to appear back in court on Tuesday.
Sheriff’s police helped bust the dog fight Wednesday night in the 1500 block of 142nd Street in Dolton. Authorities were tipped off about the fight when a resident called police about 7 p.m., said Dolton spokeswoman spokeswoman TaQuoya Kennedy.
Two people were immediately arrested and six others were cuffed later when found hiding in the rafters of the building, said sheriff’s spokesman Frank Bilecki.
At least 10 pit bulls were found and have received medical treatment at the South Suburban Humane Society.
Those arrested and charged were:
- Reginald Bailey, 26, of Dolton, who was being held in lieu of $20,000.
- Rolando Davidson, 43, of Harvey, who was being held in lieu of $15,000.
- Michael Dubose, 56, of Country Club Hills, who was being held in lieu of $15,000.
- Anthony Fugate, 27, of Beecher, who was being held in lieu of $10,000.
- Donald Hudgins, 45, of Chicago, who was being held in lieu of $25,000.
- Willie McCray, 26, of Calumet City, who was denied bond because of a prior arrest warrant for murder.
- Shaquille Middleton, 18, of Country Club Hills, who was being held in lieu of $10,000.
- Arnulfo Salgado-Sanchez, 35, of Harvey, who was being held in lieu of $15,000.
