OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — A Baltimore County man is facing animal cruelty charges after police say he tossed a Yorkshire terrier from a balcony.

County police say officers were called to Mill Centre Drive Sunday evening after a woman saw a man walk out on a balcony of townhouse and throw something. She investigated and discovered an injured Yorkshire terrier.

Police spokeswoman Cathy Batton says a woman came out of the house and collected the dog, which was taken to Falls Road Animal Hospital.

Batton says the dog named Lonie had serious, life-threatening head and spinal injuries after being thrown about 50 feet from the 23-foot-high balcony.

Batton says 43-year-old Gary Wallace Jr., who lives at the home, is charged with animal mutilation and animal cruelty. He’s being held on $250,000 bond.
