Fifty-year-old Olvydas Abromavieius of Union Pier, Michigan, is charged with felony domestic violence animal cruelty and misdemeanor domestic battery. The LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office in Indiana said in a news release that officers responded Sunday evening at a LaPorte home to a domestic disturbance.
