A Lubbock man that was previously accused of purposely running over and killing a dog is now back in jail after it's said he was speeding and ran a stop sign.

KAMC News reports that back on December 2nd, 2019, Lubbock Police responded to the 2200 block of 36th Street for a disturbance. Police were told by the victim that her dogs had gotten out and ran behind the BPL Plasma.

It's said that when 29-year-old Rico Del-Valle Leyva exited BPL, the dogs began barking at him. The victim said that the dogs wouldn't bite, but Leyva took his sandal off and threw it at them.

It's then reported that as the dogs were walking back to the victim, Leyva got into his vehicle and attempted to run them over. Allegedly, Leyva drove into another person's yard as he was attempting to run over the dog.

One of the dogs eventually ran into the middle of the street and stopped, and that's when the victim says that Leyva struck the dog and continue west on 35th Street. Leyva wasn't arrested until July 24th, 2020.

Leyva was out on bond, but on Wednesday, March 17th, he was arrested again for speeding and running a stop sign. How fast he was going exactly wasn't clarified. His bonding company afterwards asked a judge to revoke the bond, and the judge said yes.
