Fridley, Minn - A woman in Minnesota has been arrested and charged with three counts of animal cruelty after allegedly throwing three pit bull puppies at her 25-year-old boyfriend.
David Remme and 20-year-old Gabrielle Allen had been arguing inside an SUV outside an apartment complex last Friday morning when Remme allegedly struck Allen in the face, breaking her nose.
That’s when Allen reportedly picked up three week-old pit bull puppies that had been in the front seat and threw them at Remme. No reports on if she hit her mark, but the puppies landed in the parking lot.
As Allen left the Anoka County Jail with a black eye, she denied any wrong doing.
“I didn’t throw any puppies.” She claimed. “I was wrongfully incarcerated. I have a broken nose. I have some bruises and scars all over my back. That’s all I’m going to say.”
Police say that although the puppies landed on concrete, they appear to be fine. They were taken to a breeder for evaluation and neither of them were believed to have sustained any injuries. Because of this, Allen will only be facing misdemeanor charges.
Charges that Allen says police should have been filed against Remme in the first place.
“When they came, I had them in my hand, holding them,” she said. “I was going to get out of the truck to pick up the puppies that he threw. That’s why he blamed it on me, because he knew he was going to jail for a domestic.”
Remme was arrested on suspicion of third degree assault for re-arranging Allen’s face, and is being held at the Anoka County Jail.Tags: Animal Cruelty, Crime, Domestic Violence, Gabrielle Allen, Minnesota, pit bull
