From the Daily News:
A hotheaded Queens bodybuilder killed his dog by tossing it out of a third-floor window - then played dumb, telling cops he was asleep the whole time.
Milan Rysa, 30, hurled Brooklyn, a Chinese Shar-Pei weighing about 50 pounds, out of his apartment on Steinway St. in Astoria as he played thumping dance music about 8:30 p.m Monday, police and witnesses said.
Witnesses said Rysa looked out the window, saw a crowd gathering near Brooklyn's broken body, then shut off the music and the apartment's lights.
Cops, not sure what they would encounter inside the apartment, armed themselves with a battering ram and bulletproof shields, witnesses said.
But Rysa eventually opened the door and claimed he was just catching some shut-eye, a witness said. He was booked for aggravated animal cruelty and reckless endangerment, and taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center for a psychiatric evaluation.
