In Slidell, Louisiana, a man allegedly abusing a woman’s dog after the couple had an argument was captured on a doorbell video. Shane Michael Mitchell was arrested on Monday after the video circulated on social media.
According to the Slidell Police Department, the disturbing incident occurred on Sunday when Mitchell, 30, was videoed choking the dog and would not return the pup to his estranged girlfriend. Based off the video, the police secured an arrest warrant for Mitchell charging him with animal cruelty.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal stated:
“I was sick to my stomach watching that video. How someone can do hurt a defenseless animal is beyond me. I had the opportunity to meet Rubyjean this afternoon, and she was as sweet and well-mannered as could be. We are glad this had a happy ending for both the dog and her owner.”
Mitchell is currently being held at the Slidell City Jail. The investigation is on-going, and additional charges could follow in reference to other incidents.
The dog, Rubyjean has been returned to her owner.
