Lyft Driver Charged With Animal Cruelty After Throwing Dog Into Air During Road-Rage Fight
There are plenty of garbage pails on legs out there. But if you really want to see who the biggest ones are just look at the people who hurt innocent and defenseless animals — just look at idiot Marc Dione.
Dione, a 22-year-old Lyft driver from New Jersey, was actually caught on camera not only involved in a road-rage fight, but caught grabbing a driver’s dog out of the backseat and tossing it almost 30 ft in the air. The New Jersey SPCA Humane Police have now filed criminal and civil animal cruelty charges against him after seeing the video.
Here’s what started the road-rage incident according to CBS.
Gary and Linda Kaey claim Dionne had been weaving in and out of traffic on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair for a half-mile before getting stuck at a bus stop and getting out of his car in a rage.
“He was upset about the stopping bus in front of him, jumped out on our hood, stomped on the hood,” Linda said.
That’s when another driver started recording Kaey and Dionne out in the road throwing punches before Kaey headed back to his mini-van. Dionne can then be seen reaching into the passenger’s side of the van, grabbing Kaey’s 12-year-old dog Daphna, and flinging her nearly 30 ft in the air.
“Obviously he couldn’t get the best of me, so he chose to take an innocent animal and try to hurt me with that,” Kaey said.
And now here’s the video.
Luckily, the dog named Daphne only suffered some bruises and is now recovering well. As for Dixon, he has been charged with animal cruelty and has been booted from Lyft. Here’s what Lyft had to say.
“We are shocked and horrified by what we saw in this video. While this did not happen on the Lyft platform, we permanently deactivated the individual after learning of his truly cruel behavior; he will never again be able to use Lyft. We are relieved to hear that Daphne is recovering well.”
And here’s hoping even more karma hits this tool soon.
