LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they arrested a Louisville man after he left a dog tied to a vehicle in early February.
According to the arrest warrant, it happened on Feb. 2. That's when police say 20-year-old Dalton S. Miller, and two other unknown suspects left the dog tied to a vehicle in the parking lot of the Kentucky Humane Society without food or water.
Police say Miller "went into the business to surrender the dog, but was unable to leave it for unknown reasons." That's when he "tied it to a bumper of a stranger's car outside the business and left, leaving no food, water, or shelter for the dog."
The dog was found a short time later by an employee. Police say the dog was not hurt.
Police were able to contact the owner of the car Miller was driving by using video surveillance footage. The car's owner identified Miller as the person who was driving that day.
Miller was arrested on March 25 and charged with abandonment and failure to provide necessities for an animal.
