    Man admits tossing stranger's chihuahua off bridge

    Associated Press Writer

    FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- A man who tossed a stranger's Chihuahua off a bridge in a fit of anger faces up to more than four years in prison after pleading guilty Monday to aggravated animal cruelty and theft.

    David M. Beers, 35, of Brunswick, will be sentenced June 7 for snatching 4-pound Zoey from Caisha and Timothy Wantz's driveway and throwing her out his car window as he crossed Catoctin Creek on state Route 464 last June.

    Neither Beers, a lanky Marine Corps veteran and wireless communications technician, nor his lawyer offered a reason for his actions Monday. Beers told police he was angry that the Wantzes had ordered him off their 25-acre property near Jefferson after he had stopped to make a cell phone call. He said he thought their driveway, a quarter-mile dirt lane winding through hilly fields about 35 miles from Washington, was a utility road.

    Beers left the property but returned a few minutes later when the Wantzes were gone, grabbed the white-and-tan Chihuahua and carried her in his car nearly four miles to the bridge, a concrete and rusted steel structure at least 20 feet above the water. - News From AP
