RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The man accused of torturing, maiming and killed several dogs had his bail hearing in Reno Justice Court on Tuesday.

Jason Brown is expected to pay his $70,000 bail in the coming days out of a trust fund. But it is his past that was the focus of much of the hearing.

According to detectives, Brown had been arrested for Driving Under the Influence, prior to his arrest for alleged Animal Cruelty on July 9. Brown was in rehab, and his parents said he was there for alcohol abuse. However, Brown claims it was for anger issues.

During his bizarre court appearance, Brown said that the DUI was not his fault, because it was his job to be around alcohol as a bartender. "My Driving Under the Influence was because of my employment. I was a bartender at the time."

He also claimed he was brought to rehab against his will. "I was brought there without my knowledge. I left before, because I kind of just woke up there and told them the story."

Brown's next hearing is scheduled for Monday. An animal rights group is expected to protest outside the Reno Justice Court.

Checkout his FB site. Pics of him with all the ducks he killed but also with a lab. I wonder if it's his dad's dog and if he killed it too.

How can we find out who set his bail. Which by the way has been posted. I'd like the name for the next local elections! I understand he was adopted into money. I'm so tired of people with money in this area getting away with murder! I can't help but think of an incident several years ago in which a young student walked into Pine Middle School and opened fire on people. I think he wounded a teacher who lived. The student lived in Caughlin Ranch and, long story short, he got "House Arrest"! Is that what's going to happen here?

Ridiculously low bail amount. Something is definitely wrong with this gentleman. He needs to be put away before he moves on from animals to humans. RIP to all the sweet babies he inflicted his cruelty upon.

This guy needs to be put away for life, it starts by torturing animals then moves to torturing people. And if he try's to blame his DUI on his job...he isn't quit right anyway. He had no mercy for the animals he tortured, I hope the courts have no mercy for him.
