Welcome to Alexandra Mendez Diaz‘s life, a cantankerous 30 year old marijuana binger who caused a scene this past Wednesday evening in the hub of hipster haven, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Gothamist: Wednesday night a woman who bodyslammed her dog on to the pavement drew a crowd at North 7th Street (and Driggs) in Williamsburg. At around 9:30 p.m. she allegedly began throwing things out her window before walking her dog downstairs and throwing it to the ground. Though there’s no word on whether or not the dog survived the ordeal (many witnesses said it was panting and barely alive), we’ve confirmed with the precinct that the woman, 30-year-old Alexandra Mendez-Diaz, has been charged with animal torture and marijuana possession.
So is this the way Diaz lets off a little steam? By double slamming her pooch onto the sidewalk in front of horrorified onlookers? Does one get the feeling that Diaz was somehow on the receiving end of this special treatment once herself? After all – you know the old saying- ‘Monkey see do, monkey do.’ Thankfully there were no monkeys involved here…
According to Brooklyn365—who first reported the story—New York penal law 130.20 states: “A person who overdrives, overloads, tortures or cruelly beats or unjustifiably injures, maims, mutilates or kills any animal, or deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, food or drink, is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by both.”
Which means if Diaz is doing this every other day- does that mean she’s got a $365 000 fine waiting for her, never mind the suspended 365 year sentence. Could you imagine the look on the dog’s face every time Diaz walked into the house- “Shit Darth Vader is back, I still haven’t recovered from this morning’s bruises.”
But guess what kids it really gets better. How much better- let’s read on…
Yesterday, a commenter who witnessed the scene said the woman was proclaiming to be “The Queen of Brooklyn” before she walked into the intersection and, as officers approached her and the crowd looked on, picked the dog up over her head and slammed it into the street.
Queen of Brooklyn or queen of animal torture? Isn’t it about time Diaz is put up for adoption or one of those special places for unloved animals….?
