Neighborhood Reacts to Dog's Death Leading to DUI

By Jacqueline Gedeon

The death of a dog ended with an assault charge for the dog's owner and a DUI charge for the man who reportedly ran over the pet.

People in the neighborhood said they were surprised to hear about the incident.

It happened in the 1200 block of E Third Street in Anaconda, a quiet family neighborhood near a park.

Jasmine Allison loves pets and her neighborhood. She'll tell you typically there's not much crime that happens around here.

"Everybody knows everybody, and so its generally a quite and nice neighborhood," she said.

But then the worst happened, her neighbor's son was walking his family's dog and she'll never forget what she heard.

"His family was out front and they were all sort of collected out there and all of a sudden some drunk guy flew through in his vehicle and and just, right over the dog and kept going over to the park," Allison said.

Reports said when the driver, Anaconda resident Tony Marry, came back around the block, the dog's owner, Jeff Carney, allegedly jumped on the side of the driver's vehicle and punched Marry several times in the face through the open window.
