Kevin Lee Sullivan, 32, of Middletown, is charged with animal cruelty, a fifth-degree felony, for the alleged September incident on Howard Avenue.
Police said Sullivan initially lied to them about his involvement, but an investigation by Middletown police and the dog warden’s office led back to him as a suspect.
Sullivan was booked into the Middletown City Jail at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Middletown Municipal Court, according to court records.
