Beckley man accused of kicking, dragging and throwing dog to ground

A Beckley, West Virginia man was caught on video abusing his dog on Friday. The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office immediately responded ending in animal cruelty charges and the dog having been safely rescued.

According to the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office Facebook, Jerry Hommey III, 35, was caught on camera kicking his dog, dragging it by the neck, picking it up again, throwing the defenseless animal to the ground and then dragging it some more.

“A male subject was observed by a citizen abusing a dog. The dog was kicked, drug by its neck, picked up and thrown to the ground and drug some more before it was hooked to a chain. The incident was captured on video, and the video was provided to the Sheriff’s Office. The male subject was identified as Jerry Hommey III.”

A warrant was later issued for his arrest. In addition, Hommey has other outstanding warrants for other crimes.

The dog is currently in the care of the Raleigh County Animal Control.

    O Jeremy Hommey III – I am praying that YOU become a victim during your jail stay – since there are other outstanding warrants for your useless ass – may you be there for quite awhile – and may your punk white butt become the object of every predatory inmate there. I hope that the judge in this case has a backbone and will give this miserable subhuman hunk of garbage some serious jail time and that Hommey the Homily get a massive dose of street justice.

    Inbred savage SOS deserves to reap the same treatment. Perhaps the fucker will wind up in prison and become someone’s bitch who will use his Hershey highway to exact revenge.

    Other warrants? Why don’t they go pick him up and throw him in jail? Somebody needs to be doing their job! I’m glad the dog is no longer with him.
