Chattanooga man arrested after beating dog with crowbar

A man living on Crescent Drive in Chattanooga was arrested  on Tuesday after he allegedly beat the family dog with a crowbar and threatened to harm his mother, reports the Chattanoogan.

Alexander Garcia, 29, faces charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to animals after his mother called authorities when her son picked up the crowbar and started to strike the dog. When the mother tried to stop her son, he threatened he would also hit her. Garcia was not cooperative when police arrived and is currently being held in the Hamilton County Jail without bond. There have been no updates on the condition of the dog.

Garcia shows a past record for domestic assault and animal cruelty, but all charges were eventually dropped. His mother no longer wants him anywhere near her home.

Garcia is scheduled to appear in court on September 30.

    I bet Mom is really proud of her low life son! I hope and pray the dog is ok and I hope and pray she stand firm not letting him anywhere near her home. I say he needs to stay in jail for a very long time!

    Take one look at the POS drug/alcohol induced eyes and YOU Will HAVE the answer to the PROBLEM!!! His mom let this POS intimidate her and the poor victim (dog) long enough. To bad she didn’t have a 38 slug available when he was going to hit her with the crow bar . She might have spared the dog probable death!!!

    Did he live with his mother? What is with these loser kids who are adults but still living with momma? I’m glad his mother called authorities. Now, she needs to change the locks on the doors after kicking him to the curb.

    Another dead eyed, soulless scumbag who has no business out on the streets. Why did they drop the original charges? This POS is obviously a very DANGEROUS piece of excrement, and it makes no sense that he was not in jail at all! The person and owner of the animal he hurt prior to this probably dropped the charges (perhaps his mother), but this time it looks like she got smart. Let’s hope she stays that way.

    This is totally insane, why would this guy do something so horrific. I have 0 tolerance for people that abuse and are cruel to animals. It’s unforgivable. You deserve the worst sentence for this, you will never hurt another animal again. And should be banned from ever owning or being around animals. You Loser.

    Thank God the mother called the police. So many parents are either afraid to or condone the barbaric behavior their demonic children do. This Inhumane sub-human threatens his mother, obviously mental issues and extreme anger issues as well. Glad he went to jail please keep him in there a very long time. And I pray the mother does not allow him back into her home.
