ARDMORE, Okla. – An Ardmore police sergeant who was charged a year ago for allegedly poisoning dogs in his neighborhood has pleaded no contest.

Last year, Sgt. Barry Antwine was charged with putting out poison for domestic animals.

According to court records, Antwine is accused of putting ethylene glycol in a Cool Whip container outside his home.

The chemical is found in antifreeze and brake fluid.

Officials say at least six dogs died mysteriously about that time.

Antwine originally entered a plea of not guilty, but recently pleaded no contest, according to KTEN.

He has been ordered to pay $792 in restitution and perform 50 hours of community service.

He has been on paid administrative leave since April 2014.
