FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Criminal charges have been dropped against a North Texas veterinarian accused in 2014 of theft and animal cruelty.

WFAA-TV (http://bit.ly/2jb9l9W ) reported Wednesday that a grand jury declined to indict Dr. Millard Lucien “Lou” Tierce of Fort Worth on the theft count. Court records show the remaining charge was dismissed in November.

Investigators say Tierce was arrested after allegedly telling a woman that he euthanized her dog but instead kept it alive, for months, for blood transfusions. The animal was later returned to the owner.

The State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners in October 2014 suspended Tierce’s license for five years, saying he violated standards of care and failed to practice with honesty and integrity.

Tierce, who declined comment Wednesday, is allowed to do administrative work in his office.
