TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Tacoma, Wash., man accused of tossing his neighbor's Chihuahua out a second-story window has been charged with first-degree animal cruelty.
    
According to court documents, George Harris called 911 several times beginning Monday evening, claiming his apartment had been broken into and accusing a neighbor. Police reported finding no evidence of a burglary. In their report, officers said the man was "obviously having a mental-drug issue."
    
Martha Tigner tells KIRO-TV she and her children were looking for their missing 9-month-old Chihuahua Baby Jerry on Tuesday when she saw the dog thrown from an upstairs window. The animal was limping and bleeding after a roughly 30-foot fall onto concrete. That's when she called police.
    
Police say Harris denied throwing the dog. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday. Bail was set at $25,000.
    
KIRO reports that Baby Jerry is recovering at the local Humane Society.
