Lady Gaga's father shares why he's happy about arrests
Lady Gaga found herself dealing with unexpected tragedy earlier this year after her dogwalker and friend Ryan Fischer was attacked. Fischer had been walking Gaga's French bulldogs in Los Angeles back in February when he was shot and two of the dogs were stolen.
"That's fabulous news. I hope the L.A. prosecutor doesn't let them go," Germanotta said of the recent prosecution to Entertainment Tonight. He also said that he's "proud of the police department out there for sticking with it" and hopes that "the DA doesn't let them go now."
Lady Gaga's dogs returned by suspect arrested in case
Gaga's father also mentioned that he plans to inform his daughter of the latest development in the case. The singer is currently in Italy filming House of Gucci, and Germanotta said he's "sure she'll be happy" about the news. As for Gaga's dogwalker Fischer, he was fortunate enough to survive the incident and left the hospital a month later.
The LAPD released a statement about the case on Thursday, revealing that Gaga's celebrity status doesn't seem to have been tied to the assailants' motive. They also identified the woman who returned the dogs on February 26 as Jennifer McBride. As it turns out, McBride is connected to another person of interest in the case— Harold White, who is the father of suspect Jaylin White.
Along with Jaylin, the LAPD also arrested James Jackson and Lafayette Whaley. According to Entertainment Tonight, they believe the three men were directly involved in the attack on Fischer. The charges for the crimes committed by these individuals are said to range from robbery to attempted murder.
