Dog Owner Charged After Landlord Attacked

A man whose three dogs inflicted 150 bites on a 66-year-old man last year is charged with a misdemeanor.

Stephen Carl Locklear is charged with misdemeanor attacks by dangerous dogs. James Jones was attacked in his back yard In Lumberton on November 6th and was hospitalized for two weeks.

Locklear was renting a mobile home from Jones and had been told to move out because he wasn't supposed to have dogs on the property.
