"I'm obviously not happy about it," Jessica Wenner, Kelly’s girlfriend and the puppy’s owner, told WOFL. But she wasn’t the only person to take offense to Kelly’s actions. Authorities say that the incident led to a fight between Kelly and his brother, during which Kelly allegedly bit his brother on the chest, WOFL reports.
