Matthew Ryan Mansfield of Newport, VA was arrested under the charges of brutally beating a one year old Labrador dog. According to a local newspaper article, the girlfriend of Ryan, Ann Marie Russell, called the police to their home on Beechmont Drive regarding a domestic situation.

Allegedly Ryan had beaten the dog after the dog relieved himself inside the house. As punishment, Ryan punched him and kicked him to an extent that he had to be humanly euthanized.
