Man Charged In Ann Arbor Duckling Deaths 4-27-2011

An Ann Arbor man has been charged with a felony after authorities said he deliberately ran over and killed four ducklings with a Hummer in a fast food restaurant parking lot.
AnnArbor.com and the Detroit Free Press reported 19-year-old Dillon Pearce was charged Tuesday in 15th District Court in Ann Arbor with one count of killing/torturing animals.
Defense lawyer David Nacht said Wednesday that the charge is "absolute baloney" and says his client was trying to rescue the ducklings, not hurt them.
The court says Wednesday morning he had no attorney on record yet. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 4.
Ann Arbor police say he ran over four of at least eight ducklings a McDonald's parking lot on Monday evening. He was arrested at a nearby gas station.
If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
