Tressness, who lives with his mom in the 8400 block of South Ainsworth Avenue, got into an argument with his girlfriend on the phone at about 6 p.m. on Friday. When he hung up the phone, he was so angry that he kicked a highchair and broke a coffee cup, according to Cool.
Tressness stormed into his room, and his pet Chihuahua, Duke, followed him. Cool said Tressness then kicked Duke hard enough to kill the dog.
When police arrived at the house, Tressness allegedly told the officers he has an anger problem and he didn’t mean to kill the dog. He was arrested and booked into Pierce County Jail for investigation of several charges, including animal cruelty.
