A Florida man has been arrested for DUI and animal cruelty after punching a dog and throwing it down steps.

Deputies responded to a home on SE 149th Place in reference to a disturbance.

When deputies arrived they learned that, while he was intoxicated, Deanta Bridges, 27, punched a dog and threw it outside down a set of steps.

Deputies say he left the home in a vehicle prior to the deputies’ arrival, despite the fact that he was under the influence of alcohol.

Bridges was later located and agreed to perform Field Sobriety Exercises, and was placed under arrest for animal cruelty, DUI, and driving with a suspended license.

He also refused to provide a breath sample after being transported to the Marion County Jail.

If you refuse a breathalyzer test in Florida, your driver’s license will be suspended immediately.
