CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A Chattanooga man was arrested on Tuesday morning on the charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to animals.

Police were dispatched to an assault call at Crescent Drive where they arrested 29-year-old Alexander Garcia.

 Garcia allegedly threatened his mother with a crowbar saying that he was going to hurt her. He then used the crowbar to strike their dog repeatedly. 

Garcia’s mother told police that she did not know why he was behaving like that and also told police that he had been arrested in the past for aggravated robbery. 

After being uncooperative with police, Garcia was finally arrested at around 10:30 a.m. His mother told police she is wanting to press charges and does not want her son back at her residence.
