A man from Louisiana was arrested by the police after he was caught on cam choking his estranged girlfriend’s pet dog.
Authorities said that Shane Michael Mitchel, the man in the video, stole Rubyjean, the dog, and choked her on Sunday after arguing with his estranged girlfriend.
The Slidel Police said that they sent undercover investigators to look at the incident and arrest him after watching the video.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal said:
I was sick to my stomach watching that video. How someone can hurt a defenseless animal is beyond me.
Investigators found out that Mitchell was in an apartment building in Slidell after he refused to cooperate with the authorities.
They also recovered the pet dog that was abused.

Rubyjean, the pet dog, was returned to its original owner.
30-year-old Mitchell was booked into jail on animal cruelty charges.
Chief Fandal added:
I had the opportunity to meet Rubyjean this afternoon, and she was as sweet and well-mannered as could be. We are glad this had a happy ending for both the dog and her owner.
The best part about this is that everything was caught on cam and Mitchel has been arrested and charged for his horrible actions.
