Texas man smiles for booking photo after dog dies in hot car

Judging by his booking photo, the man who was arrested on the Fourth of July following the death of his dog inside of a hot vehicle is completely disconnected from the horror that he allegedly inflicted.
According to KETK News, Bill Omer, 23, was arrested yesterday in Galveston, Texas, after his dead pit bull was discovered inside of a vehicle on the 3100 block of Avenue S. in Galveston, Texas.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the 23-year-old student was in Galveston celebrating the Fourth of July.
Even though temperatures yesterday climbed past the 90 degree mark, Omer left his dog locked inside of a vehicle for over an hour - time enough to cause the dog to collapse and die from apparent heat exhaustion.
Omer is facing felony cruelty charges which could result in two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if he is found guilty.
