Police in Palm Bay, Fla., arrested a man after he was caught on tape having sex with his roommate’s dog, reports Florida Today. Joshua Lee Werbicki, 22, was charged with animal cruelty and sexual acts involving animals.
Werbicki was caught on security cameras repeatedly having sex with his roommate’s German Shepherd mix. She reported him to police after she saw the footage and told officers that her dog had been limping as a result of the abuse and acting strangely toward family members. Werbicki lives at the woman’s home and works at a Papa John’s restaurant. Brevard County Animal Services Sgt. Michael Healy told Florida Today that his agency is waiting for police to wrap up the case but he may seek an injunction to have Werbicki banned from living with any type of animals in Brevard County in the future.
Animal cruelty is a felony crime in Florida; sex with animals is a misdemeanor.
