A 23-year-old man who admitted being under the influence of alcohol when he broadsided a Baton Rouge police patrol car in October 2009, seriously injuring Lt. Robert "Bobby Glaser Sr. and killing his police dog Philos, was put on probation for four years.

After Jesse Farris was sentenced on Friday, Glaser said that his emotions still run high over the loss of his "buddy but he forgives Farris.

The Advocate says State District Judge Richard Anderson ordered Farris to serve 30 days in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on weekends as part of his probation.

Anderson, who also fined Farris $2,000, said if Farris violates his probation, he will put him behind bars for five years. The judge said the 30 days will give Farris "a taste of what it would be like.
