A crazed Williamsburg woman took her anger out on her dog last Wednesday, slamming the puppy to the ground and declaring herself “the Queen of Brooklyn,” according to witnesses.
Alexandra Mendez-Diez, 30, began her tirade at around 10:30 pm by throwing her belongings out of her N. Seventh Street apartment window. Then, horrified bystanders said, she walked out of her front door and body slammed the canine, a white shih tzu named Will.
Police arrived minutes later, charging the woman with reckless endangerment, torturing and injuring animals, disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Mendez-Diez faces two years in prison on the crimes. She has no prior criminal charges, according to a spokesman for District Attorney Charles Hynes.
The puppy was taken to a veterinary hospital, where he remains in stable condition. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is taking up the abused pooch’s cause, collecting donations to pay for Will’s medical care.
To donate or adopt Will, call (212) 252-2350.
