CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Clarksville man was arrested after an officer heard a loud argument and saw a dog get thrown into a window.

According to a press release, it happened just after midnight Tuesday in the area of Walnut Street.

An officer heard a loud verbal argument coming from inside a home followed by the sound of animal yelping. The yelping reportedly got louder and more intense, and the officer heard a man yelling at it.

Police say the officer then saw a white unidentified animal get thrown into a window of the residence and yelp once again.

The officer reportedly went to the home and spoke with a man who was inside, identified as Joshuah Williams. He found a small white dog in a back bedroom that appeared to have an injury to its paw and could barely move.
