Texas Perp Goes From Teary To Cheery After Collar For Felony Animal Cruelty

Meet Bill Cody Omer.

The Texan, 23, was arrested last night on a felony animal cruelty count after his pit bull died inside his broiling car.

Galveston cops--responding to a 911 call about a dog locked in a vehicle--found Omer crying next to his auto. Officers believe the animal had been inside the car for at least 90 minutes.

As seen above, the shirtless Omer’s despondency somehow lifted when he posed for a thumbs-up mug shot when booked into the county jail. He was later released after posting $15,000 bond.
