Minnesota Woman Arrested For Using Puppies As Weapons

In Minnesota, Gabrielle Tywon Allen, 20, is being held on a rather odd crime — using puppies as a weapon. The Anoka County woman grabbed three 1-week-old pit bull puppies to throw at her boyfriend David Peter Remme, 25. Remme was arrested on suspicion of assault after breaking her nose and she was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty.


The two were arguing in a parking lot when Allen starting throwing puppies. Remme then hit her in the face. The puppies landed on the concrete but were unharmed.

In our effort to research past precedent, I found this one case below:

We have actually seen puppies used as weapons before — though the previous breed of choice was a Jack Russell Terrier.

  1. Like a bunch of innocent PB puppies were gonna attack her. Pit Bulls are generally dog aggressive as they were bred for dog fighting but in general they love humans.

  2. What were a bunch of week old puppies doing in a parking lot at 4:00 in the morning? She claims he threw them but blamed her because he knew he was going to be charged for punching her in the nose. Her charges will probably be reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor because none of the puppies were seriously harmed.

  3. Where is Geraldo when we need him? Puppyphilia is rampant in America. Put this woman in jail and give the guy a medal for breaking her nose.

  4. He should consider himself lucky that her Larson “Dobie-o-matic” was in the shop for repairs that day. A woman of her size using a small caliber animal like a puppy can only get so much velocity out of the physical transaction.

  5. Can we put this in correct terms. She assaulted the dogs and he assaulted her. Which one carries the greater penalty. You can bet your soul that it was more onerous to assault the schmuck who assaulted the dogs.

    What else is wrong with the post? You say that she has a broken nose but what was the injury to the puppy dogs?

    Those dogs had better be in good hands today. Someone needs to look into this and report in. This dog cant talk on the phone and can only communicate via the dogalogue machine.

    If a dog dies, here is what closing argument in the criminal case should be

    “The best friend man has in the world may turn against him and become his worst enemy. His son, or his daughter, that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and good name may become traitors to their faith. The money a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our head.
    The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground when the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only to be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince.
    When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wing, and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.
    If fortune dries his master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege that that of accompanying him against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when that last scene comes, and death takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there, by the graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful, and true, even in death.”
    Senator Vest, speaking to a jury about Old Drum, shot in 1869.

    You dog lawyers out there should save this speech.

    The guy ought to get Dog of the Week Award for breaking her nose. Notice in people talk how some person like this of the female persuasion is termed a bitch. That is a slur on us dogs. She threw the pups, throw the book at her, and we aint talkin about the Good Book. Bark! {cuss word on Dogalogue failed to translate]

  6. AY:

    You’re rarely indicted as a fool for what you didn’t say.

    It’s just a clumsy media blitz probably Right-Wing funded. The next step is to have the Rush Limbaughs of the world piggie-back the talking points. I really enjoyed Zimmerman friend, Taffe, on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show claiming he just “knew in his heart” that George was only defending himself. Maybe, he should get together with George Bush. They can re-evaluate Putin togther. Delusional clowns.

  7. Mespo,

    Just saw his brother on TV defending him….. I guess I am unsure what I’d do except keep my mouth shut…..
