Atlanta Falcons Defensive Tackle Jonathan Babineaux Arrested On Charge of Felony Animal Cruelty: Main Suspect after Dog Dies Due To Injuries

Just another cruel, rich thug. Reminds me of the Ron Artest cruelty story we published last week. You can read about that case at:

As I’ve said before: isn’t it enough for these guys that they’re paid an obscene amount of money to do what they love? Why they then have to resort to killing another being is mind boggling. You’d also think a defensive tackle would find a little dog not much of a physical challenge. Maybe he had a bad season, and like all sickos, took it out on a defenseless dog.

Gwinnett County police arrested Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux Monday morning on a charge of felony animal cruelty. Babineaux has bonded out of jail.

According to Cpl. Darren Moloney of the Gwinnett County Police Department, Babineaux's wife took a dog to an animal emergency center in Gwinnett County on Sunday. The dog later died and the subsequent investigation led to an arrest warrant for Babineaux. According to Moloney, investigators believe Babineaux "somehow had a direct hand in killing the animal."

A necropsy on the dog will not be performed until Tuesday to determine the cause of death.

Late on Monday afternoon, the Atlanta Falcons released a short statement that said, "We're aware of the situation and we're in the process of gathering information. Until we have the information we need, we will have no further comment."
