Dragged dog recovers, driver faces indictment

While a terrier mix dragged behind a truck in Tennessee continues to recover, felony animal cruelty charges against the driver have been sent to a Knox County grand jury for review.

Knox County Judge Patricia Long ruled Friday there was enough evidence presented to send the case against Jimmy Lovell on for possible indictment, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported.

Lovell’s defense attorney argued the state had nothing to show that Lovell, 45, intentionally dragged his estranged girlfriend’s dog, known as “Little Brown Dog,” behind his truck on Nov. 3.

Prosecutors countered that witnesses warned Lovell a dog was attached by a leash to his pickup truck’s trailer hitch while he was stopped at a Knoxville intersection, but he kept driving anyway.

The dog was brought to an animal shelter within two hours of the dragging and continues to be treated at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
