A man from Volusia County, Florida, was arrested Sunday for killing a dog by intentionally running over it.

According to Volusia County sheriff's office, the incident came to light Thursday when the owner of the dog learned that the canine was found dead on the roadside. The following day, a neighbor gave the owner a raw CCTV footage that had captured the incident. The footage showed 29-year-old Robert Kayat intentionally running over the dog with his truck.

The arrest report stated that the dog’s owner immediately called 911 and said, "You can see it clearly in the video that he was ran over on purpose. Anybody that watched the video would tell you that it was done on purpose."

Officers reached the home and viewed the footage in which the truck "abruptly swerves wide away from the dog then sharply towards it. The dog was startled causing it to run into the roadway. As the dog ran into the roadway it was ran over."

The video also showed the accused getting out of the vehicle and walking over to the dog after running over it. He then "nudges the dog once with his boot then kicks the dog more forcefully the second time."

The footage was shared on social media Friday and has since gone viral. Volusia County Sheriff’s office too shared a screenshot of the video on Twitter and said, “You may have seen a disturbing video of a vehicle running over a dog. We saw it & can confirm it happened in our area & the dog did not survive. Deputies have ID'd the driver and are charging him with aggravated animal cruelty.”

Kayat was taken into custody and charged with animal cruelty. He was released Monday after posting a bond. The accused allegedly expressed remorse over the incident and told the officers he did not mean to run over the dog and was just trying to scare it. The investigation into the case was ongoing.
