PADUCAH, Ky. (WGHP/AP) -- A woman who is accused of dragging a dog behind a car was arrested in Kentucky, police say.

Jennifer Morris, 60, is facing second-degree cruelty to animals and second-degree disorderly conduct.

On Monday, dispatchers reportedly received 911 calls telling them that someone was driving with a dog leashed to the back of the car. Police say the car pulled into the parking lot of a restaurant. When officers arrived, Morris was arguing with bystanders.

Officers approached Morris, who “was belligerent and refused to calm down,” according to a press release.

The dog was taken to a local veterinarian to be treated for serious injuries.
