According to the report, the dog's owner, Veronica Jimenez, was staying with her uncle, Alejandro Merlo, when she arrived home on the evening of October 25 to yelling and general commotion. The arrest report says that she entered her bedroom to witness her uncle holding her dog, and then watched on in horror as Merlo proceeded to swing the dog against the wall.
Police were called to the scene, where Merlo was promptly arrested.
In the attack, the dog suffered a broken right leg. For his unthinkable actions, Merlo is being charged with animal cruelty and is being held at the Broward County Jail with a set bond of $2,500.
