FRIDLEY, Minn. – An Anoka County, Minn., woman was jailed Thursday after throwing three 1-week-old pit bulls at her boyfriend, who allegedly broke her nose, police told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The man, David Peter Remme, 25, was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault; the woman, Gabrielle Tywon Allen, 20, of Sping Lake Park, was held on possible charges of animal cruelty, the newspaper said. Both were in the Anoka County Jail on Thursday.
Fridley police said the two argued in a parking lot outside an apartment building early Thursday. Allen allegedly hurled the three newborn puppies, which were huddled on the front seat of a pickup truck, at Remme after he punched her in the face, police said.
The pups landed on the concrete and appeared to be uninjured, police said.
