For Spraying Bullets and Killing a Dog, Cop Gets One-Day Suspension

CHAMPAIGN — A Champaign police officer who fired his gun in a residential neighborhood last fall, killing a dog and sending a round through a nearby apartment, has been suspended for a day without pay.

The News-Gazette obtained the report of Officer Andre Davis' discipline through a Freedom of Information request. The discipline was meted out March 6, according to the letter from Davis' supervisor, Lt. Robert Rea.

Davis was a patrol officer on Nov. 17, 2012, when he reacted to two dogs fighting at Crescent and John streets in the evening by drawing his weapon and firing.
