Ugly Police Mug Shot of the Week: Verne Strong

This week's ugly police mug of the week belongs to someone whose arrest, conviction and sentencing you've already read about.

Verne Joseph Strong


Verne Joseph Strong

, 57, of Newport Beach, who was sentenced Dec. 16 to 317 days in jail for swinging 8-pound, 8-month-old chihuahua-dachshund mix puppy


by a leash like a lasso during a fight with his girlfriend in a Walmart parking lot.

We'll see if Strong's girlfriend, Angel Marie Holmes, 37, of Newport Beach, also deserves the ugly mug treatment when her felony accessory after the fact trial begins.
