SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – An Otay Mesa father hopes for change after filing a lawsuit against the US Postal Service, alleging a postal carrier went too far with his pepper spray.

Four years later, Pupa the poodle mix is fine, but Alfonso Galindo says his two kids are still suffering from the actions of a postal carrier.

February 2019. After countless hospital visits and months of coughing and mysterious breathing issues for his kids, ages 3 and 1, Galindo discovered a possible answer.

Odd stains on Galindo’s patio off Agosto Street led him to check his surveillance video.

In it, a postal carrier appears to hold pepper spray under the mail as he walks by the closed metal gate at the front of Galindo’s home. Behind the gate is Pupa.

At the same time, from another camera, Pupa begins convulsing for minutes.
