Naked Man Who Was Choking Dog Shot by Homeowner in Miami: Police
NBC Miami ^ | January 2, 2013 | Donna Rapado and Brian Hamacher

Posted on 01/02/2013 8:47:00 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.

The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. in the area of Northwest 2nd Avenue and 56th Street when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.

When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.

"He comes out and spots a person who is not only fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog," Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.

The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.

The intruder was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where his condition was unknown. Police said he tried to bite the homeowners and police and workers at the hospital, and may be under the influence of drugs.

"For right now it does appear to be a justified shooting," Moreno said. "This individual was acting irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point that the homeowner attempted to get this individual's attention, he immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him."

Police said the suspect, who refused to give his identity, will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault, animal cruelty, resisting arrest with violence and lewd and lascivious behavior.

Anyone who recognizes him is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

There is something seriously wrong with the water in Florida. Way too many of these crazies.

And the moral of the story is...

Don’t get naked and choke other people’s dogs at 5 o’clock in the morning.

What’s up with all of these Obama supporters running around naked with Samurai swords and choking Rottweilers? I’ve heard of “spiking the football” but this is getting out of hand.

At first glance I thought this happened at Capitol hill in the fiscal cliff negotiations.

Thanks for the clarification officer. One would hope that falls into the realm of justified.

Reminds me of a sign my former neighbor had on the front of his house:

“Never mind the dog. Beware of the owner.”

The Rottie sure needed more training. Hard to believe he could get the best of this kind of dog.

No, not really.

OK. That did it.

I was just reading the thread on the school suspending a 6yo for pointing an assault finger and using illegal vocal effects. I didn’t think I could read of anything more asinine by man nor beast.

I was wrong.

I am now convinced humanity is too freaking far gone to survive. And I no longer think it should. Let’s just stop breeding and die off with the minimum dignity remaining in the overall species.

Well I should hope so! No man should be unclothed and chocking his dog in public! That simply isn't done.

Rottweiler ping.

The homeowner probably saved they guy's life by shooting him, and rescuing him from a Rottweiler counterattack. :)

I think that particular specimen was far more than two standard deviations from the mean, and only marginally rates being called "humanity".

Nope, wouldn't have shot him in the leg, not in the leg at all.

1. How many times do people have to be reminded, only center mass is appropriate. You don't shoot to piss of a violent druggy or lunatic. You put him down.
2. Not only was the owner poorly trained, but the dog was. I don't want to belabor the obvious, but a rottweiler should be able to fight off a naked man. There are things to be bitten.

The homeowner was not thinking. He should have shot the naked man in the 6alls. There is no reason why this human mutation needs to procreate.

Maybe the leg was the only target that would not endanger the dog.
