A Woodstock man who was charged with animal cruelty for kicking and throwing a dog in January has been ruled unfit for trial, records show.
Jonathan E. Snapp, 41, of the 500 block of Ridgeland Avenue in Woodstock, was charged with one count of cruelty to animals, a Class A misdemeanor.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court alleges that Snapp threw his dog into the air and kicked him on January 26.
The complaint also says that Snapp picked up the dog and held it by its leg.
Woodstock police officers arrested the man on the same day of the incident. It is unknown if the dog suffered any major injuries.
McHenry County Associate Judge Mary Nader said in a court order on Wednesday that Snapp was found unfit for trial.
The order said that he might be fit for trial or a plea within 60 days after undergoing treatment.
A status hearing to confirm Snapp has been placed for inpatient treatment is set for November 25. Snapp remains held in the McHenry County jail without bond.
