Michael Jones, 42, was arrested for beating his live-in girlfriend with her own dog. The two got into an argument, and when the woman attempted to drive off, Jones began swinging the poor animal in the air like a weapon. Then, he choked her before fleeing on a bike with the dog.

He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, strangulation and animal cruelty. Thankfully, neither the woman nor the dog were seriously injured.
