KTLA reported Los Angeles police said the video shows Dossey James repeatedly dragging a puppy up and down a street because the dog wouldn’t walk.

Police said James continued to drag the dog even though the animal was obviously injured, leaving a blood trail on the sidewalk.

According to KTLA, the pup needed surgery for the cuts and scrapes on its belly but it is expected to recover.

James is being held on a $145,000 bond now after authorities discovered similar animal cruelty claims made against him in the past.
