Skateboarding dog owner fined £80 - Telegraph
The owner of a skateboarding dog has been fined £80 and threatened with legal action for not keeping his Lakeland terrier on a lead.
A council spokesman said Mr Fell has 14 days to pay up, otherwise he will be forced to appear before magistrates and could face a £1000 fine.
He said: "We know Bodhiâ s antics are an amusing sight and the dog and spectators appear to enjoy it.
"But when people start getting hurt and we receive complaints we have a legal duty to act."

Look he isn't wearing a helmet, gloves or knee pads, something must be done.

"But when people start getting hurt and we receive complaints we have a legal duty to act."

From the DT story there is no evidence of "people" getting hurt. Two women (supposedly) tripping over the skateboard is not "people getting hurt" in my book. How many complaints? Just from the 2 women who "tripped over" a dog on a skateboard?

Any complaints from women who tripped over the lead used by dog-walkers?

And that's worth a fine of £80, threats of legal action and a fine of £1000 if you don't kowtow ...

Ah! I see. It's in Brighton, the only place I have been propositioned in public by a male prostitute!
