Tennessee Man Denied Bond After Setting Dog On Fire
A Tennessee judge denied Quishon Brown’s request for a new bond Friday.
On June 20, neighbors lept into action to save a dog they saw running down the street in Nutbush. A horrific video taken of the incident shows a ball of fire running down the street and the dog crying out in pain.
Brown is accused of pouring gas on the dog and then setting fire to the animal. He is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, setting fire to personal property, and simple assault.
Rescuers at Tails of Hope Dog Rescue have dubbed the dog Riona and said that an accelerant was used to set the dog on fire, leading Riona to suffer 4th-degree burns, which covered about 60 percent of her body.
She is on the road to recovery.
After his arrest, Brown was given bond. However, police say Brown’s bond was revoked when police learned that he violated his bail conditions by buying another puppy.
Brown was charged with violating bail conditions.
His next court appearance is set for Monday, July 25, at 9 a.m.
