Currence said she immediately dropped the products she ordered on the floor and rushed outside to confront the Amazon driver.
“[Expletive] Amazon took my [expletive] dog outside my [expletive] court,” he can be heard saying in the video.
In the video, Currence can be seen opening the rear doors of the Amazon truck and yelling at him.
“As soon as I opened the truck, he put the puppy in a trash can. I had to grab the puppy and get him out of the truck,” she described.
The driver has not been charged, but Currence said he was about to leave with his puppy.
“He was ready to go through with our dog,” she said.
Spruill asked Currence if the driver apologized or explained himself.
“No. He didn’t give any explanation,” she replied.
Currence said she called the police and filed a report with Amazon.
Channel 2 Action News also contacted Amazon about this incident. A spokesperson released a statement that said
“We have apologized to the customer and are pleased that their dog returned unharmed. The driver involved no longer delivers for Amazon and we have contacted law enforcement to assist with their investigation.
“It relieves me that he’s fired, but if he does things like that, I’m sure, you know it’s in his character. He’ll do it again,” Currence said.
Police are investigating and investigating this incident.
