Fairfield woman who threw pug pleads no contest to animal cruelty


FAIRFIELD (KRON) — A woman has pleaded no contest to felony animal cruelty Monday in Solano County Superior Court after she was caught on camera violently throwing a pug dog to the ground last year in Fairfield.

The District Attorney’s Office filed charges against her after police investigated the video that was taken on Dec. 19.

In the video, Chin was seen throwing a pug during a dispute with her boyfriend, causing the dog to hit the ground and roll several times. Chin also hit and choked the dog, prosecutors said.

After her arrest, officers took possession of the dog, which is named Benny, and gave it to Solano County Humane Animal Services. An exam by a veterinarian determined Benny was not hurt and was in good health, according to police.

Benny was ultimately placed in a foster home.

Chin is scheduled to be sentenced in court on Oct. 26 at 8:30 a.m., prosecutors said.
