Man charged in cruelty case violates probation, back in custody SMITHFIELD – Released on bail with special instructions to not leave Rhode Island or be in possession of animals, the RISPCA reported the Smithfield man charged with multiple animal cruelty violations in March 2018 case violated his probation and is back in police custody. According to the RISPCA, the Hillside Pennsylvania SPCA informed the RISPCA regarding an animal cruelty investigation in their jurisdiction involving Michael Williams. Frackville, Penn., police put Williams in the possession of multiple dogs, resulting in the issuance of an arrest warrant. Williams, formerly of 189 Pleasant View Ave., was arrested in March 2018 for animal cruelty "for the care and condition of 24 bulldogs and over 100 snakes seized from his resi- dence," the RISPCA said. In 2017, Williams was arrested on similar charges whiles in the posses- sion of 30 dogs at the Pleasant View Avenue home, which were ordered back in to his possession. The home was condemned following the 2018 arrests due to the "accumulated feces" and urine, according to Joe Warzycha of the RISPA.
