HOUSTON – A Houston man was arrested this week after he allegedly threw five puppies off a balcony, killing two of them.

The other three pit bull puppies were hurt.
Randy Jones, 27, is charged with animal cruelty.

Police said the puppies belonged to Jones' roommate. When a woman stopped by their apartment to pick up one of the puppies, an argument ensued about whether she could have one.

That's when Jones got angry and threw five of the six puppies from the balcony, according to police.

Jones' bond was set at $15,000.

He has two previous convictions for drugs and weapons charges.
