MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man accused of being involved in dogfighting has pleaded not guilty to six charges.

Travis Hazlett was one of 13 people arrested earlier this month. Most face federal charges, in part for allegedly transporting fighting dogs across state lines. But Hazlett and one other Milwaukee man face state charges associated with training dogs and arranging their matches.

The 31-year-old Hazlett pleaded not guilty during a hearing Monday. He’s due back in court May 22. Hazlett was released Friday on cash bond of $2,500.

The other state defendant, Thomas Zollicoffer, is due in court Tuesday for a bail hearing. He’s currently being held on $10,000 cash bond, and has also pleaded not guilty.
