Alexander Main, an 18-year-old Jacksonville man was jailed Sunday after he allegedly killed a duck at his apartment complex and showed the headless corpse off to other residents.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, a witness called police and stated that Main had captured and beheaded a duck. The caller also explained that Main had showed off the headless duck while bragging he was going to eat it.
Officers arrived to find a headless duck on Main’s patio, and blood and feathers on his clothing. Police told Main to put his hands behind his back, but he fled into a nearby apartment. Police gave chase and quickly apprehended him.
Investigators say Main had a barbeque pit fired up and ready to go when officers arrived at his apartment.
Officers determined that Main was intoxicated due to his demeanor and the smell of alcohol on his breath. While on his way to jail, Main told officers that he was on probation due to a conviction for domestic battery.
Main was booked into the Duval County Jail and charged with animal cruelty and resisting an officer. He is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
