(CBS News) SNELLVILLE, Ga. - November 1, 2011 -
Police said a dachshund was hit by a car and injured Sunday night after it had been fed LSD by its owners.
CBS Affiliate WGCL reports that police responded to a call Sunday evening of a naked man and woman running down Pinehurst Road.
According to Captain Harold Thomas, officers knocked on the door of a house and Nicholas Modrich answered the door naked.
According to police, Modrich and Jamie Hughes, both 25, told officers they had taken LSD, and had given some to their dog Oscar, who was missing.
"They were tripping pretty hard," Captain Thomas told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Officers began to search for Oscar, and learned he had been hit by a car on a nearby road.
After being hit, Thomas said, the dog bit Modrich's mother and brother.
Gwinnett Animal Control took Oscar, but Modrich's family requested he be taken to a private veterinarian, police said. His medical condition is not known.
Police said a search of the house uncovered drug paraphernalia and marijuana. No LSD was found in the home.
WGCL correspondent Mandi Milligan writes that Modrich and Hughes are expected to face drug charges - and possibly animal cruelty charges - upon being released from an area hospital.
