Monday, Feb 28, 1994County: Ozaukee
Defendant/Suspect: Daniel Paulus
School bus driver, Daniel Paulus, 46, accused of deliberately running over a dog has agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge, and to pay $700 to the Ozaukee County Child Abuse Prevention Fund.
In return the Ozaukee County district attorney's office agreed to drop a felony charge of animal abuse.
Investigators said Paulus told them he was only joking in March 1994 when he asked his riders after seeing the dog running along the road: "Should I hit it?"
