A San Francisco man accused of tossing a dog from the seventh floor of a parking garage was arrested last weekend, and is now potentially facing a long list of charges.
Police suspect 35-year-old Wakeen Best of killing a Chihuahua by throwing it from a parking garage during a car robbery, NBC reports. When the car's owner returned to the garage in which he'd parked his car only to find that his dog had fallen to its death, he originally thought that Dunky — his 4-year-old black and tan Chihuahua — had escaped from the vehicle and had fallen on its own. It wasn't until he saw the broken glass and blood in his car, and realized that someone had rifled through his glove compartment, that he alerted police. Upon their arrival, they allegedly found a trail of blood leading to the spot Dunky was thrown from.
Police arrested Best the following day, after they recognized him from surveillance video taken during the break-in. Police will reportedly be seeking charges of burglary, animal cruelty, grand theft, possession of stolen property, carrying a concealed weapon, vandalism, a probation violation, possession of burglary tools, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of a court order.
