29 Jan Dog Decapitation Case Lawsuit in Crawford County
A Crawford County couple who alleges sheriff’s deputies shot their dog and forced one of them to decapitate it is seeking at least a half-million dollars in damages.
Joe Nate Goodwin and his girlfriend, Tosha Dacon, claim civil rights violations, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence in hiring and training an employee among other points detailed in a civil lawsuit filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle Georgia District of Georgia.
The couple’s lawsuit comes nearly two months after the incident, which was partially captured on video in short clips that Goodwin posted online. The videos, some too graphic to broadcast, garnered thousands of views.
