GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A South Jersey man who starred on the gridiron years ago threw away his freedom Tuesday night when he hurled a prized police K-9 into oncoming traffic, police said.
Police in Gloucester Township, Camden County, said that their decorated K-9, Schultz, a 3 1/2-year-old German shepherd named after beloved Philadelphia Flyers enforcer Dave "The Hammer" Schultz, had clamped down on Skyler Robinson's arm after a robbery Tuesday night and held tight as they struggled toward busy Route 42.
