Ft. Pierce man arrested for shooting a dog in the face

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A 28-year-old man is arrested for shooting his roommate's dog in the face with a BB gun Sunday, allegedly, because the dog had been tearing up his stuff.

Jason Alexis Bennett, of 210 N 18th Street, has been charged with causing an animal a cruel pain and suffering.

The roommate, Chevis White, called police because he returned home Sunday to find his black pitbull cut below the eye. He called police because he said he believed Bennett shot his dog with a BB gun in retaliation, because the dog had recently chewed up a pair of Bennett's shoes.

Bennett told police he was drinking and shooting at birds with the BB gun and didn't realize he had accidentally shot the dog.

Police didn't buy that story, according to their report, and took Bennett to jail.
