HURRICANE – A 55-year-old Hurricane man was arrested Wednesday on a warrant issued out of Fifth District Court on charges stemming from an investigation by Hurricane City Police officers that the man had engaged in sex with animals.

Hurricane City Police officers arrested the man just after 2 p.m. at his Hurricane home. He was booked on the third-degree felony warrant into Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility, where he is being held on $5,000 bail.
