A skateboarding dog has been given an ‘Asbone’ after it mowed down two people, including a pregnant woman.

YouTube sensation, Bodhi, is well known for zooming down streets in Brighton on four wheels, but council bosses said he didn’t have a leg to stand on after colliding with pedestrians.

One woman was left bleeding in the road in the bustling North Laine shopping district after becoming entangled with Bodhi and his board.

Another, who is pregnant, said she had also been sent ‘tumbling’ by the Terrier.

Now the council have issued owner Jonathan Fell, of Gloucester Road, with an £80 fixed penalty notice and say he could face a court appearance if he refuses to pay.

A council spokesman said they have repeatedly asked Mr Fell to keep Bodhi on a lead but when “conclusive” photos were sent to them of the North Laine collision, they had to take action.

He added: “A photograph taken by a member of the public shows a bleeding woman lying on the ground after tangling with the skateboard the Jack Russell was playing with. A pregnant woman also complained she had been knocked over.

"We know Bodhi'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.

"The photograph is conclusive - Bodhi has none of his four legs to stand on. We're saying again to Mr Fell 'please stop before someone is more seriously injured'."

But yesterday, Mr Fell said although he will pay the fine he will not stop Bodhi doing “what he loves”.

He said: “Bodhi jumped off his skateboard when it approached a curb and the lady, who had his back to him, stepped back onto it. Even she said accidents can happen.

“They can give him a little dog Asbo but it’s his hobby and I won’t stop him doing what he loves.”

Mr Fell has 14 days to pay the fine. Failure to do so could result in a court appearence and a fine of up to £1,000.
