According to a March 4 report by NBC(FW), the Texas firefighter who was suspended last week after posing photos on Facebook has been arrested.
“Somebody didn’t put any truth my warning. Keep your damn dogs on your property.”
Conaster was suspended by the Union Valley Volunteer Fire Department, and later allegedly quit due to death threats. He has since been removed from their roster.
An investigation by Hunt County Constable Jones shows the dogs had been dumped in a ditch miles from Conaster’s home.
Jones reports Conaster turned himself into the Hunt County jail on Wednesday morning and has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty.
NBC Fort Worth reports Conaster is being held on a $5,000 bond. The Washington Post reports the bond as $10,000.
