Two Men Face Prison For February Assault of Navy Vet and Turtle In Daytona Beach


Daytona Beach, FL - Two men are facing animal cruelty and battery charges after they tortured a turtle and beat a Navy veteran for trying to stop them in February.

The two men face 5 years in prison for their crimes and a 16-year-old who participated in repeatedly smashing the turtle's shell to the ground faces juvenile court.

The Navy vet, Gary Blough, went to court Thursday supported by many concerned citizens. Blough may lose his eye due to the attack and still suffers pain from the beating.
