Married Couple Arrested For Recording Alleged Sex Video With Their Friend’s Dog

The dog, "Buddy," was a service animal. 

A husband and wife from Phoenix, Arizona were arrested last week after their relative contacted police over the discovery of disturbing bestiality footage. Melessa Ann Martinez, 44, and Roy Lee Johnston, 39, are now facing bestiality charges.

The shocking cell phone footage allegedly shows Martinez engaging in sexual acts with her friend’s dog “Buddy,” according to ABC15. According to that report, Johnston admitted filming the incident.

The couple were allegedly inspired to engage in a sexual act with “Buddy” after seeing media reports of others getting arrested on bestiality charges. A police press release revealed that Johnston said he got the idea “after watching the news and seeing a woman got in trouble for having sex with her dog.” He also admitted that he knew what they did was wrong.

During her first appearance in court, Martinez was ordered to stay away from animals. But, she said she needs a service animal because she is susceptible to seizures. According to WTVR, “Buddy” is a service animal.
