A Cobb County man spent two nights in jail after he allegedly fired two rounds from his Glock pistol, killing his dog, according to police.
Patrick Eamon Kenny, of Smyrna, was drunk when he shot the dog early Saturday with his Glock 19 9mm semiautomatic pistol, his arrest warrant states.
Smyrna police were called to the home, where Kenny didn’t hide the fact that he’d killed his pet, according to the warrant. No information was released on the dog’s age or breed.
“Said accused also did make a spontaneous utterance of, ‘I just shot my dog’ while being detained by officers,” the warrant states.
Kenny was also forthcoming about having marijuana, police said.
“The said accused did make a spontaneous utterance informing officers there was marijuana in the residence,” the warrant states. “After said accused was read his Miranda warnings, said accused was questioned about the marijuana. Said accused gave consent for a search of both the residence and specifically said accused’s bedroom.”
In the bedroom, officers located 13.5 grams of marijuana, police said.
Kenny was arrested by Smyrna police and later booked into the Cobb County jail, records showed. He was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and discharge of a weapon while under the influence.
Kenny was released Monday afternoon after posting $25,000 bond, records showed.
