(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.

    Wow, all this concern for the dog, followed by gruesome retaliation against the owners. Woefully twisted priorities, people. As long as abortion is legal, I could care less about the relative treatment of animals. Where is your gruesome retaliation for THAT?

    It's tragic that something like this happened to the dog. I lost my dachshund a couple of weeks ago when it was run over in front of my house. Don't worry, my dog was not on drugs. I wonder if the dog will be put up for adoption. I am sure that I could give the dog a great drug free home.

    Poor little dog. I hope he recovers and is loved unconditionally.

    Sure, it's depraved, stupid, and careless, but is it a crime? Can they prove the dog had LSD and that it caused the dog to be hit? Should we arrest everyone, or as many comments have requested, kill them, for not preventing their dog from being hit? If we want the govt out our our lives, we have to defend others' same liberties. They were naked in their own home, high in their own home, and MAYBE fed their dog LSD in their own home. They sound stupid, but not criminal.

      Liberty, you sound as dumb as they are. LSD is an illegal drug which makes it a crime. Didn't you read the story...they were running down the road naked. By the time the officer got to their house, they were back and still naked in the house. Just because they were in their own house doesn't make it right.

        I don't think it's "right", I just can't imagine how these two idiots will be charged, based on their word?

      Watch this psychopath! The cops didn't pull that out of their a**! The perps said they gave the dog lsd. You still at home with your mama? In the basement? I thought so. You have no respect for anyone on Earth, the law, you just think about your sorry self! What a pile?! Yes stupid, it is a crime to use and possess that garbage. It's a crime to give it to an animal. I equate your stupid argument about liberty with giving a chimpanzee the keys to the yukon. or a semi-automatic pistol! Is that illegal? what a 'tard? Thanx.

      It's criminal because it's against the LAW to do LSD. Period. It's criminal because it is animal abuse. Period.

    They wanna play with psychadelics?We know just how to do that.We think these 2 should be restrained, overdosed repeat until bored and then electrocute or pour 10 gallons of boiling grits on them while they are still tripping - Use a very terrifying drug and tormented in shifts i know plenty who would gladly to take turns easily destroying them psychologically, leaving them alive with mush for brains. they should also hope we never find out who/where they are the innocent animal victim of their cruelty i pray will not remember its torment and terror I hope they get what they deserve thats a lot

      Are you out of your freaking mind? You talk of TORTURE for human beings because a D A M N dog suffered abuse? You are one sick puppy. How did your mind get so warped? I bet plenty of lsd in your past has made you insane to reality. I would pray for you but you are a lost cause. Get a life and eat some meat.

    This is in response to "Joshua" Nov.1,2011@11:28 AM. These are not hippies, or even wannabees, they are simply punks. Punks make my skin crawl. We are compelled to take care of these creatures. We are the stewards of the Earth. It was Jesus that said so, and is there at your convenience in THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT, recorded in the Book of Matthew CHAPTER 5, folks. I wish they were hippies, back in the day you could lock them up, and they wouldn't even be aware of it! Thanx.
