Colorado man jailed for not having dog license; 50 others in Jefferson Co. face similar fate By The Associated Press

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) ' A suburban Denver couple is fighting fines after the husband was jailed for failure to get a license for his daughter's service dog.

Authorities say another 50 people in Jefferson County could face the same fate.

Matthew Townsend says he spent seven hours in jail after the dog got out and he was issued a $50 ticket. Townsend ignored the ticket and was arrested. His wife was fined $100.

Last year, the county issued nearly 500 citations for violations.
