The incident: A dog got in a man's way while he was walking over a bridge.
The appropriate response: Stepping around or over it, depending on the size of the dog.
The actual response: He picked up the dog and threw it off the bridge.
Last Saturday, 36-year-old Samuel Drew was walking in New Bern, North Carolina.
As he was walking across the town's Alfred A. Cunningham drawbridge, two dogs started following him.
According to New Bern Police, Samuel picked up one of the dogs (a hound mix, pictured above) and threw it off the side of the bridge. It fell 20 feet into the water.
A couple who were in their boat spotted Samuel throwing the dog into the water, and were able to save it.
Police say that Drew tried to throw a second dog, a pit bull, off the bridge as well, but was unable to catch it before being stopped by police.
The hound and the pit bull were both taken in by animal control.
When asked why he'd thrown the dog by a reporter from WCTI12 News, Samuel said, "Because it got in the way."
Samuel is currently being held on a $5,000 secure bond. If convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison.
