An Illinois man turned out to be the real ass in this situation after he was arrested for allegedly sucker punching a donkey then posting video of it to social media.

Police say Luis Dietrich, 18, punched the donkey in the face in late March while at a birthday party at Willoughby Farm in Collinsville, about 12 miles outside of St. Louis. The donkey was reportedly not injured.

Dietrich slugged the 13-year-old Mediterranean donkey just below its right ear, according to investigators, then later uploaded video footage of the assault to Twitter. Police were alerted of the incident by an anonymous person who viewed the post.

Dietrich was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty and taken to the Madison County jail where he was later released on $5,000 bond.
