BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – A Boulder man is facing animal cruelty charges after witnesses say he beat his dog.

William Sawyer, 32, was arrested in a King Soopers parking lot. Witnesses say he punched his pit bull and then threw it at a car.

His girlfriend says Sawyer got angry at the dog, whose name is Hercules, because he broke a window in their van and followed them to the store.

The dog was taken to a local shelter but did not appear to be seriously hurt.
