A man was arrested for having sex with his roommate’s dog and faces cruelty to animal charges along with charges of having sex with an animal. Josh Werbicki, 22, was arrested at Papa John’s Pizza, where he is a pizza delivery person in the city of West Melbourne, Florida, according to Mass Live on Jan. 4.
Family members told police they noticed signs of abuse from the dog. The person who owns the dog noticed the dog limping and the dog became “skittish” when people approached the animal. The roommate set up a hidden camera in the home and what they found was deeply disturbing. The camera caught Werbicki allegedly engaging in sex acts with the dog.
Sgt. Michael Healy from the Brevard County Animal Services told the media that depending on the outcome of the case, their department can seek to keep Werbicki away from pets. It is within the Florida laws to seek a court-ordered injunction that would keep Werbicki from owning or living with a pet in the future, according with the Huffington Post today.
The dog is a German Shepard mix and is in the custody of the roommate. Werbicki is being held on $2,500 bond. It is not known if he had made bail at this time.
