CHALMETTE- A man from Violet is behind bars accused of striking his pit bull four times with a baseball bat and plunging a sword through its neck because it messed in his bedroom.

It happened Tuesday after 29-year-old Ralph J. Topey III came home from a night of drinking.

Officials say Topey told a relative that the dog made a mess. That's when the woman saw a trail of blood and found the dog in the bathroom.

Topey is booked with aggravated cruelty to an animal. He's being held on $65,000 bond.

The dog is recovering from facial fractures and a neck wound.
