Dr. Charles Allen Bickerstaff, 64, of Catbird Retreat on James Island faces nine felony counts of ill treatment of animals, the Mount Pleasant Police Department said.

About an hour after he was booked into jail around 9 a.m. Wednesday, his bail was set at $90,000.

His attorney, Bill Thrower, said during the bail proceeding that Bickerstaff had an emergency at the hospital Monday and had thought that the dogs would be safe in his Ford Explorer.  More
