Fil-Am arrested in Las Vegas for slashing family dog’s throat for no reason at all

He said he enjoys hurting animals.


Bev Llorente of ABS-CBN North America Bureau reports on "A 22-year old Filipino-American named Jeremy Espiritu is due for sentencing in Las Vegas for slashing the throat of his family’s dog, a black labrador mix."


Espiritu is facing felony or misdemeanor charges. The report said that he actually "admitted in the arrest report that he likes to hurt dogs just for the thrill of it, even if he is not being attacked or provoked." He was quoted as saying, "I just wanted to stab the dog so I sat on the floor and cut its neck."


Espiritu used a six-inch serrated knife in a puddle of blood near the kitchen. He may be in jail for as long as four years for torturing or maiming an animal.
