Johnathan C. Andrews

A Sherwood man was jailed Wednesday after he killed his mother's small dog by pushing it against a wall, authorities said.

Johnathan C. Andrews, 22, remained in the Pulaski County jail Thursday afternoon on a charge of aggravated cruelty to animals, a Class D felony. Bail was set at $10,000.

Sherwood police say officers were called to 813 Wildwood Ave. about 3:30 p.m. to investigate a report of "someone who had killed a dog and was passed out drunk."

Andrews' mother told investigators she found Stanley, her small, brown dachshund, dead in the backyard after learning about what happened and returning to the home, according to a police report.

Police found Andrews in a bedroom of the residence and arrested him.

"When I got to the police department, Mr. Andrews said that the dog was trying to bite him and he pushed it against the wall and it didn't move after that," Officer Steven Henker wrote in the report. "He then placed the dog behind the garage."

Authorities later made contact with a man Andrews called after the dog died. That man told investigators he went to the house after speaking to Andrews on the phone and found him "passed out in the tub with a bottle of alcohol floating in the water," the report said.

The man then called Andrews' mother, who is also listed as living at 813 Wildwood Ave.

Andrews is next due in court April 15, according to the report.

I would like to push him against a brick wall with my F350 4x4 truck and see how he likes it. And, I will do it sober.

Superduty would like to kill a man over a dead dog. That sounds a little redneck.

The truck idea sounds great to me.

It's not redneck, it's disgust with a person who would commit an act of violence against a defenseless animal who served as a faithful companion to his owner. A person who would do this is one step away from doing the same thing to a human. Maybe when he gets out on probation you can take him in and care for him. And if the same thing happened to my dog I would be right there with superduty.

@ Jerome kalher, Superduty didn't say anything about killing the creep. Just mashing him up against a wall with a truck so he could feel some of what the poor pup felt. I agree with RP57's statement totally. The guy is just steps away from doing this to a person, if he hasn't already. And I'd love to be the one to deliver punishment on the creep.

It's time for Full Vigilante Justice where these cretins are concerned. I would love to see this drunken monster suffer big-time. The puppy in question was beaten to near-death, ribs broken and internal organs damaged so severely it had to be euthanized. And here you have some nutbag like Papakhan defending him. Maybe you two should get together - birds of a feather???

Had Andrews chilled out with a little illegal marijuana instead of becoming drunk on legal alcohol the dog most likely would have still been alive.

Passed out in the tub with the bottle floating? Too bad he wasn't face-down.

If I was his mama, I'm not sure if I would be more scared to let him back in the house, or to kick him out. Either way, she is not safe.
