A Lincoln County man was arrested on animal cruelty charges on Monday after deputies say he choked a dog.

The incident was reported on Benny Shrum Lane in Maiden, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

When deputies arrived they saw 18-year-old Jason Tyler Hilderbran holding his mother's Chihuahua.

His mother told deputies she was trying to get the dog from him because he was choking it because it was barking at them.

Hilderbran was charged with one count of cruelty to animals.

He was released on a $1,000 secured bond.
