Suspects in Macon dog attack turn themselves in

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Two suspects in connection to a Macon dog attack that injured a couple and left one dog dead turned themselves into the authorities on Thursday.

According to the Bibb jail website, Macon attorney Veronica Brinson and her son Ryan Brinson are charged with reckless conduct. This comes after authorities say their pit bulls attacked two people walking through their neighborhood.

Both were released about an hour after they were booked in jail. Bond was set at $650 each.

According to a Bibb County Sheriff’s report, the dogs attacked Claudia Naranjo and her puppy while they were on a walk last month on Millwood Court. She and her husband, Jose Munoz, were visiting friends for the holidays. Jose saw the attack and tried beating the dogs off of his wife. She and her husband were injured. The woman’s dog was killed.

Last month, Veronica Brinson released a statement saying they believe their gates had been tampered with and someone may have trespassed on the property. Brinson was not living at the home on Brookefield Drive at the time of the attack.

Brinson told 41NBC her dogs are not vicious dogs and they are not violent creatures.

41NBC reached out to Veronica Brinson for comment regarding the charges, but have not heard back.
