terryAUSTIN, Texas – The man who shocked bystanders on the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail last month, by beating a turtle to death with a hammer, has been charged with a state jail felony.

Terry Wayne Washington, 55, was charged Tuesday with cruelty to a non-livestock animal.

On June 21 at around 5 p.m., two joggers noticed a crowd gathered on the bridge overlooking the Bouldin Creek spillway where it opens into the lake on West Riverside Drive.

The two joggers told police they watched Washington fishing, struggling to reel in what they thought was a large fish. Instead of a fish, a large common snapping turtle came into view.  More
