WILMINGTON — A Leland man accused in the Christmas Day beating death of a rescue puppy was arrested for a second time in the case during his first appearance in New Hanover County District Court on Tuesday.

Christopher Anthony Simpson, 21, who was arrested Monday and posted a $2,500 bail for his release, was led from the courtroom by deputies after Judge Lindsey McKee increased his bond to $100,000. The increase was at the request of the prosecution who said Simpson and his girlfriend, Alyssa Croom, 22, told Croom’s family they planned to flee to Florida to escape the charges in the beating death of Axel, a Labrador retriever. The state also asked that Simpson’s German shepherd be removed from his custody.

“Your honor, (Simpson) is a danger and we believe he is going to flee,” said Assistant District attorney Christa Lawler.

When asked if he wanted to address bond, Simpson said, “I want to apologize for my actions first and — number two — we have already gotten rid of my dog.” [note how he refers to his dog, “gotten rid of”]

Simpson is charged with both felony and misdemeanor animal abuse. If convicted he faces up to 39 months in prison.

According to New Hanover County Sheriff’s Lt. Jerry Brewer, on Dec. 25 — while his girlfriend and her family went to a relative’s for dinner — Simpson was left at the Croom home with the 6-month-old puppy, which had been adopted Dec. 1 by Croom’s parents, Tammy and Herbie Croom. Brewer said that Alyssa Croom left the gathering early after Simpson called and told her the puppy peed on his foot and bit him when he “went to hit it.” [it! animals are not IT’s]

Croom’s parents followed shortly after, and as they approached their house they saw Simpson and Croom driving away, Brewer said. According to Tammy Croom, the family immediately noticed the dog was missing and searched the neighborhood for it, then an hour later Alyssa Croom called her brother to say Simpson accidentally killed the dog and where to find him. The puppy’s body was found stuffed between a boat trailer and the dog pen in the backyard, Tammy Croom said.

Brewer said Alyssa Croom told her father that Simpson “didn’t know his own strength,” when he punched the dog, killing it.

During the hearing, Deputy J. Covil, who works in the New Hanover County Animal Services Unit, said the dog’s injuries were extensive. The veterinarian who performed the necropsy said Axel was missing several teeth, had bruising under his tongue, and his liver was so severely lacerated it looked like “ground hamburger,” Covil said in court.

“He said the cause of death was due to hemorrhage — massive acute blood loss from the fractured liver — and secondary to blunt force trauma which is either from kicking and/or punching the dog,” Covil said.

As Simpson was handcuffed and led away by deputies, Alyssa Croom tearfully fled the courtroom slamming the door as she exited. The noise prompted McKee to order bailiffs to bring her back and McKee admonished Croom about her behavior. Once in the lobby, Croom got into a verbal exchange with a woman who scolded her, saying Croom was equally responsible for the puppy’s death.Screenshot_11

“Why are you yelling at me,” Croom cried, before addressing her boyfriend’s arrest.

“This isn’t fair. He does not deserve this,” she wept.

She was about to give the media her side of the story when a Simpson family member intervened saying Simpson’s attorney doesn’t want them to speak and Croom quickly left in the elevator.

Tammy Croom said she wasn’t surprised by her daughter’s support of Simpson, and that she believed her child was afraid of him. She said two years ago Simpson was arrested for assaulting Alyssa when she was pregnant. 11222483_948561468529419_5008474553083952528_nBrunswick County Sheriff’s Office warrants show that on July 6, 2015, Simpson was charged with assault on a female and battery on an unborn child for headbutting Croom. Another warrant charged him with animal cruelty for throwing and injuring a 3-month old kitten. The charges were later dismissed when Croom wouldn’t cooperate with officials. Croom gave birth to the couple’s daughter six days later, vital records show.

Tammy Croom said that her pursuit of charges against Simpson [and her daughter staying with and defending the puppy killing boyfriend] had caused a rift in the family. She said she hasn’t seen her daughter or granddaughter since this all happened and it’s frightening.Christopher-Anthony-Simpson-Alyssa-Croom-475x312
“If he can do this kind of damage to a pet he can do this damage to a human being,” she said.

Christopher Simpson is a Monster

The Monster, Christopher Simpson, that beat a five-month-old puppyAxel-e1518107861785-475x313 to death on Christmas day was taken back into custody Tuesday afternoon following a drama-filled court appearance.

Christopher Simpson, 21, was arrested Monday and charged with one felony count of cruelty to animals and one misdemeanor count of cruelty to animals. He was released from jail after posting a $2,500 bond.

Note the evil in his eyes

During Simpson’s first court appearance, prosecutors asked the judge to increase Simpson’s bond to $50,000 because they claimed he and his girlfriend, Alyssa Croom, would flee to Florida to escape the charges.

The judge decided to increase Simpson’s bond to $100,000 and ordered him not to be in the presence of any animal should he make bond.

The ruling sparked audible reactions, including applause, from some in attendance which were quickly silenced by the judge and bailiffs.   As Simpson was being arrested, his idiot girlfriend, Alyssa Croom, stormed out of the courtroom, slamming the door open. The judge ordered deputies to bring Croom back into court where the judge reprimanded her for her behavior.  Simpson beat to death a Labrador puppy named Axel who was recently adopted from the New Hanover County Animal Shelter by Croom’s parents.

According to officials with the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Simpson admitted to his girlfriend that Axel peed on the floor and bit him and that he didn’t realize his own strength while he was disciplining the dog. [The puppy is 5 months old and was not even his dog to discipline and he had to go to the bathroom while he was busy playing idiot video games and the local veterinarian who performed the necropsy noted that it was the worst case of animal abuse he has ever seen. He claimed that Axel’s liver resembled “ground hamburger.” ]

In July 2015, arrest warrants out of Brunswick County state that Simpson was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty after he abused and injured a three-month-old kitten. On the same date, he was also charged with assault on his dumbass girlfriend, who is still with him, and battery of an unborn child. District Attorney Jon David said all the charges were dropped after his girlfriend declined to cooperate with prosecutors.

Christopher Simpson, 21, pleaded guilty to one count of felony cruelty to animals. He was given a 6-17 month suspended sentence and 3 years of probation.

COWARD appears in court with IDIOT girlfriend Alyssa Croom

Simpson’s girlfriend’s family adopted the dog, named Axel, from New Hanover County
Animal Services on Dec. 1.

On Christmas, Simpson went over to the family’s house to visit. While there, the family decided to go visit other family members for the holiday; however, Simpson did not want to go and the family let him stay home and play video games.

While they were gone, Simpson called his girlfriend and told her that Axel peed on the floor. Simpson said he popped the dog on the butt and it bit him. When the family returned, they couldn’t find Axel. That’s when they called their daughter and she told them Simpson “didn’t know his own strength and killed the dog when he punched it.”

As part of his sentencing, Simpson will also have to complete a mental health assessment, anger management courses and a substance abuse screening. He cannot own a pet while on probation. [he should never be around an animal again and it is only a matter of time before this ticking timebomb kills a person preferably his idiot girlfriend and not some innocent person; remember Luka Magnotta?]

The prosecution requested bail be increased … citing Simpson’s prior charges of animal cruelty, the extremity of the dog’s injuries in the current case, and text messages between Simpson and his girlfriend indicating plans to flee to Florida.

Under Susie’s Law, Simpson will face up to 10 months in jail.

Susie’s Law, passed in 2010 as HB 1690, made animal cruelty a more serious felony offense. Named for Susie, a pit-bull mix that was tortured and set on fire in Greensboro in 2009. Susie survived, but under the state laws of the time LaShawn Whitehead, the man who abused her, would have escaped prison time.

The prosecution requested Christopher Anthony Simpson's bail from $2,500 to $50,000. Judge Lindsey McKee Luther raised it to $100,000. Simpson was taken into custody immediately afterwards. (Port City Daily photo | BENJAMIN SCHACHTMAN)
