Lady Gaga’s ‘dognappers’ arrested on attempted murder and robbery charges


Lady Gaga’s alleged dognappers have been arrested on attempted murder and robbery charges, according to reports. 

Sources told TMZ several people were arrested Thursday after police obtained security footage of the dogs being dropped off in an alley after the theft. 

Ryan Fischer, 30, was shot four times while he was out walking Gaga’s three dogs, Koji, Gustav and Miss Asia, before thieves snatched two in February.   

Gaga’s two kidnapped dogs – Koji and Gustavo – were found and returned two days after the attack, whilst the third pooch, Miss Asia, was recovered at the time of the theft. 

The woman who found Gaga’s two kidnapped French bulldogs was one of those arrested, according to TMZ. 

The Shallow hitmaker had offered a $500,000 reward to anyone who returned her dogs safely. 

Gaga had not paid out the reward due to police suspicions she had acted with the dog-stealing ring.

Fischer, who has been described as a family friend, survived the assault. 

He has posted images of himself in a hospital bed on his social media.

He also thanked the first responders who saved his life and called for his ‘attempted murderers’ to be brought to justice.

Fischer is expected to make a full recovery after he was punched to the ground and shot in the chest by the dognappers while walking the pups on West Hollywood’s Sierra Bonita Avenue at about 10pm on February 24. 

TMZ had also cited sources close to the investigation as saying they believe that the incident may have been the result of a gang initiation but they later said the theft was part of a dog-stealing ring. 

In the caption of his first Instagram photo, which showed him hooked up to a breathing tube, Fischer described how Miss Asia ran over to him after evading the thieves who fled with the other pooches. 

‘4 days ago, while a car sped away and blood poured from my gun shot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me,’ he wrote. 

‘My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own.’

Fischer described how he feared he wouldn’t survive the attack, writing: ‘I cradled Asia as best I could, thanked her for all the incredible adventures we’d been on together, apologized that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself.

‘Hopeful that my calm(ish) and forceful pleas for the urgency of my care as well as the focused descriptions of the dogs would be enough to help me and get enough police and media attention to find the boys, I looked backed at my guardian angel. I smiled at her shaking form, thankful that at least she would be okay.

‘From that point, right as the neighbors poured from their homes and restaurant to us on the sidewalk, life has taken a very sudden and unexpected turn.’
