Witness: Man ran over pet pig deliberately

Alfred Grant Jr.

    A man arrested for intentionally running over a pet pig is behind bars without bond.
    A witness told deputies she watched as Alfred Grant Jr., 22, of J.U. Williams Lane in Pembroke, gunned his engine and swerved off the road as he aimed his vehicle toward her neighbor’s pet pig,  He laughed as he drove away from the injured animal, according to Bulloch County sheriff’s incident reports.
    Deputy William D. Sims responded around 2 p.m. Monday to the J.U. Williams Lane location, where the incident took place. He questioned the pig’s owner as well as the witness, who said she saw the whole ordeal.
    The witness told Sims: “When Mr. Grant saw the pig, he accelerated his pickup truck and swerved off the roadway, running over the pig, and sped away laughing,” the deputy wrote in reports.
    The pig was apparently outside of its confines, wandering in a field next to the road, he said. Regardless, the witness told him the act appeared intentional, as Grant had to swerve off the road in order to run over the pig and laughed as he left, reports stated.
    The witness ran over to the pig, which could not move but was squealing in “what seemed to be immense pain,” Sims wrote.
    Grant returned to the scene and the woman who saw him strike the pig asked about the deed.
    “She stated his response was, ‘Yup, I sure (expletive deleted) did,’ as if he did not care,” Sims said.
    When Sims arrived and asked Grant about running over the pig, he said he did because he had been “texting and driving, and that he did continue driving without stopping to check on the pig because he saw it still moving,” according to reports.
    Sims arrested Grant, charging him with aggravated cruelty to animals. Grant remained in the Bulloch County Jail Tuesday evening without bond. Sims wrote in reports that Grant was placed on an investigative hold until further information on the case is obtained.
