Man charged with abusing pit bull

I hope this sorry piece of shit rots in hell.

HUNTINGTON — A criminal complaint charges a Huntington man with shaking and slamming down his pit bull.

It was one of three charges facing Thomas Delbert Sealey. The 37-year-old was charged with felony animal cruelty, misdemeanor fleeing on foot and a contempt order in family court. The contempt order caused bond to be denied.

Criminal complaints charge Sealey was at his 11th Street residence Tuesday night when neighbors heard “the defendant making several loud thumping noises” in the laundry room. The complaint states Sealey had his pit pull and was shaking the animal and repeatedly slamming it to the floor.

Sealey followed the shakes and slams by kicking the dog, the complaint states.

“The neighbors advised that the dog was whining and yelping as the defendant was beating the dog,” the complaint states.

The Huntington Police Department responded to the scene, but Sealey fled on foot. The complaint states Sealey ran back inside the house and ignored commands to stop. He was located in an upstairs attic room.

The complaint states Sealey claimed to have fled to escape the contempt warrant in Cabell Circuit Family Court.
