Sibley reportedly became angry with the dog when the dog didn’t behave the way Sibley wished, according to the arrest warrant. Sibley then slapped the dog, put the dog in its kennel, and threw the kennel and dog off the second story of the Allround Suites hotel in Marietta, trapping the dog in the debris from the kennel, according to the arrest warrant. After throwing the kennel and dog onto the parking lot, Sibley allegedly proceeded to throw the kennel and the dog into the trash bin at the hotel. Police said Sibley said he thought the dog was dead when he threw it in the trash bin. When police arrived, the dog was reportedly alive and had blood in its mouth and suffered broken legs.
Sibley was arrested by the Marietta Police Department on June 28 and jailed on a $10,000 bond. He was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony.
