Ted Shuttleworth, who briefly wrote for NYPD Blue, was caught up in his own crime drama on Saturday when he was arrested for killing his poodle. A necropsy found that Shuttleworth's dog Lola died of a brain injury, and police say that the Sunnyside, Queens, man punched her in the head because he was angry at her. Shuttleworth is facing a year in prison, but his wife insists the incident was just "a horrible accident."The deceased poodle's name was Lola.
My smallest dog weighs around 8 pounds. I worried about damaging her neck with the leash and collar sometimes. Whatever made this guy think he could punch this little creature without causing harm?
