Authorities say a Goodyear man is facing charges after killing the family dog in a barbecue smoker because he was upset with his teenage daughter's T-shirt.
Goodyear police say 42-year-old Patrick Zane Thompson is jailed on suspicion of animal cruelty, assault, threats against his family and tampering with evidence.
Officers were called to Thompson's family home on Saturday.
Detectives say Thompson became upset with a shirt that his 17-year-old daughter had because he believed it had to do with the devil.
Thompson reportedly burned the shirt in a barbecue smoker parked in a side yard and then did the same to the family's poodle.
Police say Thompson told officers that he had smoked marijuana earlier in the day.
