This is the moment a man was caught on camera slamming a French bulldog into a wall after beating it on an elevator.
Brandon Tynes, 33, was arrested on Tuesday after an employee at his apartment building in Nashville, Tennessee called authorities and alleged Tynes was abusing his dog.
A brief video shot from an elevator camera shows a man police identified as Tynes throwing the eight-month-old dog into a wall before dragging him away.
He is also seen smacking the dog in the face as he holds it and kicking the animal as it cowers in the corner of the elevator.
One of Tynes neighbors told WZTV: Thats pretty heinous. You know, if youre that type of guy, why even have a dog.
Director Lauren Bluestone at the Metro Animal Care and Control in Nashville told the New York Post that the dog survived the attack and appears to be happy and healthy other than a few abrasions that we found..
Bluestone said that Tynes had another French bulldog, an eight-year-old female, who was taken from Tynes and is in good condition with rescue workers.
