Police officers arrested a man for kicking his red pit bull, Buddy, outside the federal courthouse in Key West Saturday, reports said.
Joseph Eigenbrod, 35, was jailed on suspicion of felony cruelty to animals. He remained in the Stock Island jail Monday in lieu of $5,000 bond.
Officers said they received a report of a man kicking a dog and when they approached Eigenbrod, he became upset when they took away Buddy.
"I was just doing what I do," he reportedly said, making a kicking motion with his leg. Buddy on Monday was safe and sound at the Florida Keys SPCA, staff there reported.
