A raging lunatic in Riverview, Missouri is accused of dropping a 4-month-old puppy to the ground from above his head and then beating the defenseless little one with a hockey stick. Cartez J. Spriggs has been charged with felony animal abuse.
According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Spriggs, 33, was arrested on Friday after Riverview police arrived at his home concerning a report of a man beating a dog. A bloodied hockey stick was found in the front yard. Searching the area, officers found a puppy inside of the home lying in a pool of blood. When rushed to an animal hospital, the puppy was “rendered comatose from its injuries.”
Spriggs told police he had blacked out with rage when he threw the puppy and hit it multiple times with the hockey stick; blaming the assault to the pup on stress.
Spriggs had been in custody at the St. Louis County Jail. Reports state he is no longer there.
