From TMZ:

A former screenwriter for “NYPD Blue” was arrested for beating a poodle to death and could face up to a year in prison.

Ted Shuttleworth was busted Saturday morning in Queens, NY after punching his 4.5 lb poodle so hard in the face she died, according to the New York Post.

The 51-year-old TV writer took the canine to the vet afterwards — but her death raised suspicions and sparked an investigation by the ASPCA.

Following the necropsy, a spokesman for the ASPCA concluded, “Lola sustained a traumatic brain injury secondary to the application of blunt force to the right side of her head at the hands of her owner.”

Shuttleworth now faces up to a year in prison for the puppy-cide.

Holy crap. Who punches a dog, let alone a four-and-a-half pound poodle, in the face? A SCUMBAG, that’s who. I’m sorry, what’s that? You’ve punched a dog in the face? Well, this just in: then you’re a scumbag, too.

In recent news, this is, by far, the most disturbing story I’ve heard—even more disturbing than the bath salts dude who ate the homeless guy’s face, and even way more disturbing than Octomom’s dead-eyed porno stills. I’m still having nightmares about old Octo touching her ladybits in front of a clothesline filled with onesies.

Move over, Michael Lohan—Douchebag of the Year award officially goes to Ted Shuttleworth this year. I mean, at least Michael Lohan only punches bitches in the crotch, not the head.

  • I think “scumbag” is too polite a descriptor for this guy. He should spend at least a year in jail. I would like to see him spend more, but unfortunately the laws aren’t written that way.

  • WHat goes around comes around – hope he gets cancer and dies a miserable suffering death. Loser.

  • I hate people who hurt innocent children, animals and the elderly. Who in their right mind would do that to a poor defenseless 4 lb creature. I hope the little dog didn’t suffer much. I hope that jerk dies in a vat of acid.
