An arrest has been made in an animal cruelty case in Adairsville that was caught on video.

According to Adairsville Police, the video surveillance footage showed a passenger car pull up to the side of a building, off of Summer Street.

A man got out of the vehicle and appeared to be looking around to make sure his actions would not be seen.

He then opened the trunk and removed a small dog.

The man then threw the dog up in the air into the back-parking lot.

The driver then entered the vehicle and drove off.

The dog was located and was given medical aid for a small visible wound on its back-left leg.

47-year old Charles Edward Baldwin of Adairsville has since been arrested and charged with misdemeanor cruelty to animals.
