Woman Arrested After Leaving Dog In Car

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (UPI) — Police in Florida said a woman who allegedly left her dog in a hot car with the windows up was charged with resisting arrest and tormenting animals.

Delray Beach police said multiple customers at a Publix supermarket approached an officer shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday and told him there was a dog locked in a car with the windows up in the parking lot where the temperature was measured at 84 degrees, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

The officer said the car’s owner, Juliana Fiorio, emerged from the store about 20 minutes after he filed his initial report and refused to answer his questions, saying: “I don’t have to listen to you.”

The officer said the woman  initially refused to give him her ID, but she handed the card over while calling her mother. However, when a second officer arrived, she snatched the card out of his hands and attempted to leave.

Fiorio was arrested and placed in the back of a patrol car. The dog, who officers said was extremely “thirsty,” “lethargic” and “clammy,” was released to Fiorio’s mother.

Fiorio was charged with resisting arrest and tormenting animals. She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail at 1 a.m. Thursday.
