Martial Arts Instructor Takes Down Animal Abuser (Video)

A Florida man who was abusing his dog was confronted by a martial arts instructor who placed him in a choke hold until police arrived (video below).  

KFOR reports that Dennis Davidson of Brevard County, Florida, confronted John Snell, whom Davidson alleges was kicking and abusing his pet dog.  

"We noticed a gentleman chasing a dog around, and the dog was cowering. And he was shouting obscenities at it, and every time he'd get close, he was swinging and/or kicking at it," Davidson said.

After Davidson confronted Snell, Snell began threatening Davidson's wife.

"He basically got irate and started to move toward her, shouting some obscenities and pointing." 

Unfortunately for Snell, Davidson is a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, and teaches the discipline at a nearby martial arts school.  Davidson placed Snell in a choke hold and took him to the ground, where he held Snell until police arrived.  Onlookers filmed the incident and have uploaded the video to YouTube.  

Snell was arrested on charges of battery and animal abuse.  Meanwhile, Davidson says he plans to adopt the dog that Snell was abusing.
