COLQUITT COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A man is accused of throwing a dog at a Colquitt County deputy.

Investigators say 35-year old James Hargraves was drunk when he crashed his Dodge Caravan on Highway 37 this week.

When a deputy walked up to him, he says Hargraves threw a poodle at him, hitting him in the face.

Another officer tased Hargraves who continued to tussle with deputies.

He faces several charges, including DUI and simple battery.

The dog wasn't seriously hurt.
