(NETWORK IN)  The man accused of shooting and killing a Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy said he did it because he “didn’t want to get bit by a dog” and that he has “no remorse” for what happened.

Anthony Baumgardt said those two things as he was walked into court for his first appearance in the charges against him in the death of Deputy Jacob Pickett.

When asked why he did it, he said “I didn’t want to get bit by a dog”, referencing Deputy Pickett’s K-9 that was with him during a foot pursuit of Baumgardt on Friday, March 2.

Someone looking on said “That’s Deputy Pickett’s dog, that’s Brik.”

Baumgardt replied “I didn’t want to get bit by Brik.”

When asked if he was sorry, he said “nope, no remorse.”
