October 31, 1997

County police arrested a Potomac resident in Pasadena on Wednesday on animal cruelty charges after residents complained that a man was beating his pit bull at the side of Mountain Road.

Police received a call about 9: 30 p.m. that a man was kicking and throwing a dog to the ground at Mountain Road and Hog Neck Road. Officer James McDermott found the man a few blocks away at Hog Neck Road, stopped him and asked about the complaint.

McDermott said the man told him that he was angry because the dog had gotten into someone's car and that he beat it.

Two witnesses identified the man, and police arrested him.

TTC Daniel Francis Gogolski, 25, of the 10800 block of Old Coach Road was charged with cruelty to animals. County Animal Control officials took the dog.
