Florida Man Beats Roommate’s Raccoon With A Hammer, Then Threatens To Kill Neighbor
In the latest news coming from the state of Florida, a man was arrested after he bludgeoned his roommate’s pet raccoon with a hammer and threatened to kill her and his neighbor earlier this month.
According to officials, 31-year-old Tevin Williams allegedly beat the animal with a hammer and then shot him with a bb gun on December 14. Moments late, he held a needle to his neighbor’s neck and threatened to kill them.
Williams’ roommate told Lake County Sheriff deputies that when she arrived at her home on Circle Drive in Mount Dora, he came out and began pounding on her car. He allegedly yelled “I’m going to kill you,” a sheriff deputy states in the arrest affidavit.
The raccoon was still breathing when the deputies found it. It’s unclear if it survived the brutal attack.
Williams was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated animal cruelty. He was booked into Lake County Jail and was released three days later after posting $6,000, according to Law&Crime.
