The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said that 47-year-old RUBEN ESCOBEDO was arrested for throwing a dog into the side of a motor home, shattering a glass window in the process.
On the afternoon of Sunday, March 28, the Sheriff’s Office received a call about a person who abused a dog.
Deputies were dispatched near the 8200 block of Ilex Street in an unincorporated area of Fontana.
Upon arrival they learned that ESCOBEDO grabbed a dog and threw him into the window of a motor home for no apparent reason, said the Sheriff's Department.
According to the Sheriff’s Department, the furbaby, a 9-year-old mixed breed named Bugs, was dragged and suffered an injury that resulted in a limp.
Bugs’ guardian has previously used him as a service dog.
