Brandon Tynes, 33, was arrested after the video was sent to police on Tuesday by a security worker at the apartment block were he lives in East Tennessee

A Tennessee man was captured on surveillance video violently abusing his dog, by kicking the helpless creature in the face before launching it against a wall.

After the video surfaced on Tuesday, police identified 33-year-old Brandon Tynes as the suspect and arrested him on charges of aggravated animal cruelty.

Police became aware of the shocking incident when a staff member at the apartment complex where Tynes lives in East Nashville sent the footage to investigators.

The video shows a man, believed to be Tynes, picking up the 8-month-old dog and repeatedly slapping it in the face, after the bulldog appeared to urinate in the elevator.

Noticeably agitated, he exits the elevator before returning momentarily and kicking the dog in the face and body in a series of vicious blows.

Tynes is then seen taking off his shirt to mop the elevator floor, before grabbing the dog by the scruff of its neck and hurtling the defenseless creature towards the wall.

The dog bounces off the hard surface with a sickening thud, flipping over onto its back and falling five-feet down to the ground.

The pooch springs back to its feet but appears to recoil away from Tynes, before being yanked away on its leash.

Since his arrest, Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) seized custody of the afflicted pooch, and another of Tynes’ bulldogs who can be seen cowering the background as the violent chain of events unfolded.

MACC’s Lauren Bluestone said she and her staff were stunned and upset by the video, branding Tynes’ believed actions as appalling.

‘They seem to be doing fairly well, especially with what the video showed,’ bluestone told WKRN of the dogs’ conditions. ‘There is hardcore footage showing what happened in the circumstance.’

Bluestone added that she found the video difficult to watch, but doing so is vital for any upcoming legal proceedings.

Tynes has been charged with aggravated animal abuse, which, if found guilty, he could face up to 11 months behind bars and fines of up to $11,000, state law suggests.

It’s believed Tynes has an otherwise clean criminal record, but was also cited for simple drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia after his arrest Tuesday.

Tynes is expected to appear in court on July 12. He is no longer registered as an inmate at the Davidson County Sheriff’s office.
