A Plymouth, CT, man who is accused of abusing a puppy was arrested three times in three hours Monday, according to Thomaston police.
Police first arrested 45-year-old Ronald Boivin, of Plymouth, just before 5 p.m. Monday after receiving reports of a drunken man abusing an 8-week-old puppy in the area of 310 South Main St.
Animal control responded and took the puppy.
Police issued Boivin a misdemeanor summons for cruelty to animals and released him on a promise to appear, according to police.
Before police even left the area, they saw Boivin cursing in public about the original complainants, so they charged him with second-degree breach of peace and he was released on a $1,000 bond and ordered not to return to 310 South Main St, police said.
Police again responded to 310 South Main St. just after 7:30 p.m. when Boivin returned to the property and they arrested him again and charged him with first-degree criminal trespass.
He posted the $1,000 bond and is due in court on Oct. 24.
