Juan Daniels, 20For more than 2 weeks the police have been after Juan Daniels, 20, of Montgomery, Alabama, for ‘allegedly‘ setting the family dog, dubbed ‘Louis Vuitton’ by Montgomery Humane Society workers, on fire, after chaining him to a tree and beating him with a shovel. And why did he do this? He was denied use of the family vehicle!

U.S. Marshals and Gulf Coast Regional Task Force members along with state and local authorities took the 20-year-old into custody at 8:45 Tuesday morning in Tuscaloosa and he will be returned to Montgomery to face felony animal cruelty charges.

Louis, still under vet care as he will be for some time to come, is recovering and in good spirits and despite the pain he is in is a tail wagger! He sustained severe burns to more than 60% of his body.

Louis received his name in recognition of a Mobile dog nicknamed “Gucci” after it survived being set afire in 1994. The Mobile case led to passage of Alabama’s “Gucci Law,” which made it a felony to torture a dog or cat. If convicted, Daniels could face up to 10 years in prison.
