A Jonesborough man was arrested on animal cruelty charges after he allegedly tortured and killed a family dog, according to a Washington County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Dustin Ricky Harrell, 21, 1178 Old Stage Road, Jonesborough, was charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal after he admitted to investigators that he killed a family dog named Honey, according to Sheriff Ed Graybeal.

Harrell repeatedly threw the dog down stairs, held it under water and cycled it through a clothes dryer for approximately four minutes, Graybeal said in the release.

The dog’s leg was broken during the torture, causing it to cry for help. The dog’s mouth also was taped shut to prevent it from crying out further.

Harrell was being held in the Washington County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bond pending an appearance in Sessions Court on Monday at 9 a.m.
