Police: Man Beat Dog For Pooping On Floor
CHICAGO (STMW) - A Ukrainian Village man was so intoxicated he threw and kicked his dog because she defecated on the kitchen floor early Thursday, police said.
Anthony Jones, 45, of the 900 block North Damen Avenue, was charged with cruelty to animals, a misdemeanor, according to police.
Police who went to the suspect’s home to do “well being check” early Thursday found him to be highly intoxicated, loud and combative, according to a police report.
A witness told police Jones had arrived home intoxicated and he became angry when his dog, a female black Labrador mix, defecated on the kitchen floor, so he started kicking and throwing the dog around, according to the report.
The dog yelped in pain when he allegedly stepped on her neck, but she was able to get free and bite his left hand, the report said.
There was blood on the apartment floor and walls as well as a “substantial” amount of blood on his shirt and pants.
Jones was arrested at 1:40 a.m.
