TAMPA BAY, Fla. — There is a new video in a shark dragging case in the Tampa bay area.

Images show three men, not only dragging a shark behind a boat but also shooting it.

Prosecutors are preparing for trial, and they just released the new video as part of discovery in the court process.

The story went global and originated with video of the shark being dragged back in 2017.

Three men have been arrested, and two have taken deals.

Robert Benac faces an animal cruelty charge that the state claims was captured on this video.

Tampa bay defense attorney Bryant Camareno weighed on the shocking images.
