A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.
The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.
When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.
"He comes out and spots a person who is not only fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog," Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.
The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.
The intruder was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where his condition was unknown. Police said he tried to bite the homeowners and police and workers at the hospital, and may be under the influence of drugs.
"For right now it does appear to be a justified shooting," Moreno said. "This individual was acting irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point that the homeowner attempted to get this individual's attention, he immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him."
Police said the suspect, who refused to give his identity, will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault, animal cruelty, resisting arrest with violence and lewd and lascivious behavior.
Very very cruel to choke a dog.
Ping this over to the dog pings guy please. Thanks!
At least he didn’t “Choke-the-Chicken”!
Maybe the offender thought he was a replicant — and the home owner was a Blade Runner!
Did the cops shoot the dog yet?
Sounds like a real possibility (duh).
Going hand-to-paw with a rottweiler when you’re naked, could be really rough on the dangly parts...
Yup. Just think what might have happened if he’d picked this fight with a Doberman, a breed known for their fondness for human crotches. However, in the perp’s eyes, he was just giving the dog a fair fight since the dog was naked too.
Anyone check with the FL Dem Party Headquarters to see who’s missing?
Ping for possible interest ...
“For right now it does appear to be a justified shooting,” Moreno said.
Ya think Dinozzo?
I thought I was either psychic, had gone insane or was having massive deja vu:
Thank God it was the latter.
Damn, I hate when that happens. You have a tough day at work and you get home, and jeez....
Post #3. Not bad, my friend.
Can you imagine what the dog was thinking with this naked guy on him? Maybe it was a her? I don’t know but naked guys and dogs don’t mix.
Yes. I, too, am glad they’re both the same story. Even one such incident is a bit too much to think about ...
