A Byron man was arrested after a neighbor says he killed her family's puppy. The dog's owner is in fear for her life, and the lives of her two children.
"He came back with a gun in his hand and aimed it at her and looked at me and said you had this coming and he shot her twice in the head," Toni Smission, dog owner.
Jason Allman has been accused of first beating Toni Smission's dog with a hammer and then shooting it because it was on his property.
He was charged because of his own security camera footage. It shows Allman with an automatic pistol and silencer.
Chief of Police Cannon said the man "fired 14 shots". He is charged with Felony Aggravated Cruelty to Animals and Discharging a Weapon in a Residential Area. This carries a one to 5 year jail sentence.
The ATF should investigate why this man has a silencer and is using it in a neighborhood?
The Attorney for Mt. Allmon is Mr. Michael Chidester and he said "Mr. Allmon shot a nuisance animal on his own property. It wouldn't be a crime if he'd shot a raccoon or a possum. We don't see why this animal is anything but a nuisance animal... In our view, Ms. Smisson is just as guilty of animal cruelty as Mr. Allmon is."
Hmm... It would still be a crime to discharge a firearm in the city limits and it would still be a Felony to commit Aggravated Animal Cruelty.
At least he admits Jason Allman is guilty.
Chief Cannon with the Byron City Police department has yet to turn over video tapes that Mr. Allman made of himself shooting the puppy. Mr. Woody the Peach County DA has only seen a partial copy of the video.
What is going on here? Evidence tampering?
Mr. Michael Chidester is also on the Byron City Council in Peach County Georgia.

Mr Michael Chidester is on the byron city council, but he only moved into the city of byron after he was elected to his 2nd term. I thought you had to live in byron city to be elected to byron city council? Not only does he advocate killing puppies who are wagging their tails at you, but he advocates doing it with a silencer and firing 14 shots, cause you know, not everyone is a marksman. Also According to the code of byron ga, a mayor pro tem position must be rotated. Mr michael chidester has had that position 2 terms concurrently. What's is going on up there in byron?

Why did Michael chidester issue 2 totally different statements? Trying to get his story straight? He told 13 wmaz:
In an e-mail, Allmon's attorney Michael Chidester said Allmon acted to protect his children, including his wheelchair bound son who was in the yard at the time of the incident.
then 1 day later he changed it in an answer to FOX 5 ATLANTA
Michael Chidester, a lawyer representing Allmon said, "Mr. Allmon shot a nuisance animal on his own property. It wouldn't be a crime if he'd shot a raccoon or a possum. We don't see why this animal is anything but a nuisance animal. In our view, Ms. Smisson is just as guilty of animal cruelty as Mr. Allmon is."
