Bestiality suspect Finney told cops the ‘sex with dog’ video posted online was a fake and that she had been drugged with something slipped into her drink
Finney was in court for a misdemeanor charge of having sex with a dog that police say was recorded on video and then shared on social media.
A warrant for Finney’s arrest had been issued in January, after police learned about the bestiality video featuring the Warren resident. Eventually, the defendant was arrested Sunday, when workers at a Walgreen’s pharmacy recognized her as the woman from a news report wanted for ‘getting into trouble with animals’ and called cops.
At around 9pm on Sunday, officers went to Finney’s home at 1125 Ward Street Northwest and found her hiding in the basement and crying.
According to a report by WKBN-TV, Finney told police the recording was a fake and that she had been drugged with something slipped into her drink.
Investigators believe the video was genuine and that Finney’s sexual encounter with the dog took place on New Year’s Day, reported WFMJ.
Amber ‘HoodPrincess’ Finney, seen with her cat, pled not guilty to a videotaped sexual encounter with a dog
Police first learned about the incident on January 24 when they began receiving complaints from Internet users claiming to have seen the video that featured Finney allegedly performing sex acts on a dog.
According to a criminal complaint, Finney ‘did knowingly engage in sexual conduct with an animal, or knowingly possess, sell or purchase and animal with the intent that it be subjected to sexual conduct.’
Finney, who goes by the moniker ‘HoodPrincess’ on Facebook, has owned multiple pets over the years, including a pit bull mix named ‘Biggie’ and a black-and-white cat.
Police have not said whether the dog seen in the sex video was one of Finney’s animals.

The law was passed in the wake of widely publicized case in which a 61-year-old Salvador Rendon was caught repeatedly having sex with his daughter’s two boxers.
Bestiality in Warren: ‘Dog lover’ Salvador Rendon was convicted for animal cruelty in April of 2016. His wife caught him several times having sex with both male and female dos in the home.
Salvador Rendon was charged with animal cruelty during his arraignment in municipal court in April of 2016. The 61-year-old Warren man had sex with a male boxer and a female boxer at least 10 times over a period of past six years.
The tip off to the acts came from Rendon’s wife, who reported him after allegedly catching him in the act several times.
Warren County at the time, had no law against bestiality. Rendon was convicted of animal cruelty and sentenced to thirty days in jail.
A similar but less severe state law took effect last month.
