Cruelty charge dropped over dog on motorcycle

MARLBORO, N.J. - November 11, 2011

Gyula Szatmari pleaded guilty to an unsafe driving charge instead.

The 56-year-old paid $449 in fines, surcharges and court costs in Municipal Court in Marlboro.

Szatmari has driven the bike for years with his Boston terrier "Bosco" sitting on a platform behind the windshield.

He was ticketed on Aug. 24.

Szatmari's attorney James Curran, told the Asbury Park Press he thinks his client is going to get a special carrier in recognition of the animal control officer's concerns.
