Jonathan Ford, 32, the operator of the "I Love Lucy Pet Rescue” operation in Pope County, Arkansas, was arrested in June on bestiality charges. Ford was arrested after another animal advocate, Kimberly Bodle, allegedly saw photos of Ford engaging in sexual activity with dogs, NY Daily News reported. She also claimed she was made aware she allowed the dogs to penetrate him.

Once again, Ford is in trouble with the law. Ford, who is from Hattieville, Arkansas, was arrested for allegedly plotting to to break into the Russellville Animal Shelter. According to the Pope County Sheriff's Office, they received information about Ford’s plan on Friday, June 26.

Ford remains in custody, THV11 reported.

Nearly 13,000 people have signed a petition started by Bodle to receive the maximum punishment for his misdemeanor bestiality charge. Ford faces up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500, according to The Petition Site.
