ORLANDO, Fla. —

An Orange County teenager who just got out of jail three weeks ago on charges he tried to kill an Orlando police dog is back behind bars Tuesday for the same thing.

Landon Barnes is accused of trying to choke a deputy's K-9 in a yard near Anderson Drive when they tried to arrest him for burglary.

Orange County deputies said the 18-year-old choked deputy dog Bowden so hard he broke open Bowden's metal collar.

Barnes previously went to jail accused of trying to drown Orlando police dog Seabee, who has since recovered from a nasty infection and is back to work.

Sgt. David Stephens said Bowden held his own Monday night.

Stephens said Barnes tried to fake him out by pretending he was giving up, but Bowden didn't fall for it.

Dr. Dan Hill at the Lake Underhill Animal Hospital said Bowden, a little shaken and sore, should be back to work in two more days.
