Update on BOBBY HORTON JR. (pictured with SAMANTHA ROSE ANDERSON).
On Thursday, September 26, BOBBY HORTON JR. was sentenced to 30 months probation for burning a defenseless dog in March 2018.
HORTON and his girlfriend ANDERSON had adopted an 8-month-old Pit bull puppy named Simba from a mutual friend.
The duo were accused of using chemicals or hot water to severely burn the defenseless furbaby.
When their friend tried to get Simba back, a gun was fired in the apartment the couple shared on Jacqueline Drive.
This led to a police standoff and eventually HORTON surrendered.
An online fundraiser helped pay for Simba’s medical care whose injuries healed.
Simba was adopted out of state.
