A Quad Cities man faces criminal charges after police say he dragged his dog behind a motorized scooter.
Surveillance video caught the incident around midnight on Sunday.
A clerk called police after they found a trail of blood outside the 7-11 off Avenue of the Cities in Moline.
WQAD reports police later arrested 47-year-old Samuel May who allegedly said the four month old lab couldn’t keep up with him on the scooter.
The dog is in the care of the county animal shelter.
“It just makes you absolutely sick and angry, very angry. How can you do that to an innocent animal,” the shelter director Sam DeYoung said.
May is charged with animal cruelty.
