Kimberly Lawson Arrested For Allegedly Having Sex With German Shepherd

Authorities in Tennessee recently charged 40-year-old Kimberly Lawson with a criminal offense against an animal after he was allegedly caught having sex with a dog.

Officers were contacted on Saturday morning by a South Memphis resident who reportedly observed some bizarre activity involving his neighbor's German Shepherd, Adam, according to a Memphis Police Department report.

The man said that he observed Lawson feed Adam from a plate before he saw "Lawson pull his pants down, get on his knees and allow the dog to mount him and have sex," the arrest affidavit states.

According to the witness, the dog mounted Lawson three times within one hour.

After recovering from the shocking sight, the witness called another neighbor and asked him to look out his rear window to see if he could get a view of Lawson in action.

"He ... observed suspect Kimberly Lawson engaged in sexual intercourse with Adam, the dog," reads the police report. "[The second witness] said he observed the dog mounted on top of suspect Kimberly Lawson from a behind position having sex."

The two men eventually confronted Lawson and detained him until police could arrive on the scene.

The dog's owner, Caroline Morris, told police she had suspected that something was wrong with her dog because, for the past two weeks, he had "been behaving oddly and has had [a lot of] energy."

"I had to tell Adam he didn't do anything wrong. The man did something wrong," Morris told WHBQ News.

Morris did not immediately return The Huffington Post's calls to request a comment.


Morris' husband, Eddie Morris, said that his entire family is upset by the alleged incident.

"I think it's just really disgusting, and I think it's just bad," Eddie Morris told WMC-TV. "You know, my kids have to be exposed to what's happened, and I just feel violated altogether."

At the time of his arrest, Lawson allegedly told police that he was drunk and had been awake all night. He is incarcerated at the Shelby County Jail on $7,500 bond.
