MAN ACCUSED OF ANIMAL ABUSE ARRESTED TUESDAY

Colvin

The man wanted by Tuscaloosa Police on an animal cruelty charge was apprehended Tuesday.

Blane Austin Colburn, 21, was arrested on first-degree animal abuse in relation to a video that was widely spread across social media last week.

The video shows a man dumping three young dogs from a crate and throwing two against a wall. All three dogs have been checked by a vet and are expected to make a full recovery, but one did suffer minor injuries stemming from what happened in the video.

Colburn turned himself in to the Tuscaloosa County Jail Tuesday afternoon and was held on a $10,000 bond.
