Tomas Bautista, a 40-year-old Florida man was jailed Thursday, charged with sexually assaulting his roommate’s dog.
According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Bautista was drunk when his roommate, identified as Clemente Velasquez, came home and told him to go to bed.
Bautista instead stumbled out into the backyard, followed his roommate’s black-and-white Chihuahua mix, Mimi.
“A little while later, Velasquez heard Mimi yelp, so he grabbed a flashlight and ran into the backyward,” according to the arrest afffidavit.
That’s when Velasquez found Bautista passed out with his pants down and his dog bleeding.
Velasquez notified police before taking the dog into a vet where she was treated for her injuries. Bautista reportedly told police that he used his finger to violate the dog.
Bautista was booked into the Broward County jail on a charge of third-degree cruelty to animals. Florida is one of a handful of states that does not outlaw bestiality.
