hungry howies when she glanced out the widow and couldn't believe what

she saw--

Alexis Vandalsen, witness

:34:34 and he was just beating it in its head- and it was only a puppy.

:03

Vandalsen says this man- Fred Lee Sheetz

Dragged a puppy out of his car by the neck- and beat it over the head ten times.

Vandalsen

:34:10 so i watched for like 5 minutes and then i was like this is it!!

:04

Vandalsen called 9-1-1.

According to the police report Sheetz was beating his 13 week old

English pointer puppy- like this one we found online.

Vandalsen

:35:12 i felt sorry for the dog

Vandalsen says he dragged the puppy across the parking lot- then

grabbed this hose and started spraying the puppy in the face

Vandalsen

:35:54 I was very upset- I started crying- I was shaking. i felt so

bad for the dog.

:07

When deputies asked him why he did it-he told them he was training the puppy.

Vandalsen

:35:45 thats not training your dog. you dont sit there and hit your

dog in the face or punch it.

:04

we stopped by his home tonight but no one answered.

This is Sheetz 3rd arrest in two weeks. the other charges are for a failure to appear and a battery charge.

Shawn Johnson, Punta Gorda

:40:47 thats ridiculous. I think he needs to spend some time in jail

and think about it.

Sheetz is in jail tonight.

The puppy is being taken care of by Charlotte county animal control.

YOU CAN IMAGINE THE DISSAPOINTMENT.

07:58-8:03

"it would be helpful if they were doing what they say they were going to do for us, but they don't"

ACCORDING TO DATA - MERRILL HAS COLLECTED -- HE CLAIMS 90 PERCENT OF FLIGHTS COMING INTO R-S-W FLY DIRECTLY OVER FORT MYERS BEACH.

6:28-37

"when a plane is coming in at that altitude their coming in with their engines totally on. because they have to to stay in the air. "

BUT EVEN AFTER FIGHTING THE FLIGHT PATTERNS FOR MORE THAN A DECADE -- MERRILL SAYS HE HAS NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.

10:16-10:26

"there hasn't been any real, concerted effort by the town council from here, to do what's needed in order to make a change in the situation."

FORMER MAYOR AND TOWN COUNCILMAN - ALAN MANDEL -- SAYS THAT'S NOT TRUE.

27:15-27:23

"they show that there are planes flying at 3,000 feet or very close to 3,000 feet which is an improvement from the 16 hundred."

MANDEL AGREES IT'S NOT EXACTLY WHAT RESIDENTS WANT - BUT IT IS AN IMPROVEMENT.

27:23-31

"not all are yet, and thats what we'll work on to get more and more of them or a greater and greater percentage over time."

AS FOR MERRILL - HE AND OTHERS WILL CONTINUE TO WORK.

08:47-49

"so nothing is helping at this point."

Going 75 on 75 -

A bill heading to Governor Rick Scott's desk could make that legal in the future.

Theresa Medeiros

Buckingham

16:40 16:45

People choose to go the speed limits they want to regardless of what the sign says

The bill could raise the speed limit on Florida divided highways with at least four lanes.

Tyler Allen

Golden gate estates

15:07 15:10

Hopefully people will adhere to it and actually go close to 75

It passed the state senate last week -

and this morning the house narrowly passed the measure in a 58 to 56 vote.

State Rep. Irv Slosberg

D- Palm Beach County

"There is an invisible speed limit out there, which is 10 mph higher. So, we're going to have our children going 85 or 90 miles per hour, ridiculous."

Some say more speed equals more danger.

Ed montillo

Fort myers

17:59 18:02

It would create more accidents

But Representative Matt Caldwell of Lee County - who sponsored the bill says it will actually make streets safer -

because it will improve traffic flow.

State Rep. Matt Caldwell

R- Lee County

"You have vehicles that can safely travel at very very high speeds. If 70 miles per hour is below the 85th percentile of safe speed, you are actually endangering those drivers."

NBC2 reached out to Governor Scott's office -

but spokespeople wouldn't say if he'll sign the bill or not.

If he does - don't expect an automatic change.

the Florida Department of Transportation will conduct a study to decide if these new limits are safe -

and if there is a need for speed.
