LAKE JACKSON, Texas (AP) - A South Texas man has been charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly beat and tried to freeze his girlfriend's dog.
Brazoria County jail records show 20-year-old Seth Michael Drone of Richwood was being held Tuesday on a charge of cruelty to non-livestock animals/torture. Bond is $25,000 for Drone, who was booked April 24.
Lake Jackson police Assistant Chief Paul Kibodeaux (KIB'-uh-doh) on Tuesday said police on April 19 were called to a residence about an upset man and a confrontation.
Kibodeaux says a woman who lives at the home went out, returned, couldn't find her pet and then located her injured small dog in the freezer. She took the animal to a veterinarian for treatment.
Jail records don't list an attorney for Drone.
