Police: Florida man assaults pregnant woman, drowns disabled dog

A man was arrested in Florida Friday night after he assaulted a pregnant woman and drowned a disabled 7-pound chihuahua, police said.

Pembroke Pines Police took 40-year-old Juan Gonzalez into custody after responding to a domestic disturbance around 11 p.m. local time.

Gonzalez allegedly attacked his ex-wife — who is four months pregnant — and left her with minor injuries. Capt. Al Ixques, according to the Sun-Sentinel, said the suspect felt he was "disrespected" by the woman, and that he claimed to be "so mad that he wanted to fight someone."

He also "intentionally picked up the family's elderly & disabled dog" and threw the animal into a pool, police wrote in a Facebook post.
