Kenneth Hyland, 53, of Everett pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Charlestown District Court.

Prosecutors say Hyland tossed anti-freeze laced hot dogs on the lawn of the bricklayers union on Medford Street to keep dogs off the property.

At least two dogs ended up sick.

Hyland was arrested Friday.  He denies the charges.

He has more than 30 criminal convictions on his record and several aliases.
