Midland Man Accused of Beating Up a Dog

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

A Midland man is accused of beating up a dog.

The report says 26-year-old Alexander Vasquez claimed the Pomeranian had bitten him for a few days so he hit it in self-defense.

But a woman at the house told police Vasquez was angry over a cigar stuffed with pot.

She said he started kicking and punching the dog, threatened to kill it and grabbed her to keep her from leaving.

The report says police also found Xanax pills and marijuana on Vasquez.

He was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
