KINSTON, N.C. -

Kinston Police have arrested a woman after she allegedly dragged a small dog behind her car in the parking lot of the Lunch Box convenience store.

Early Saturday morning Kinston Police noticed blood near an SUV in the parking lot while investigating a car accident. Witnesses told officers that a woman dragged a small dog that was attached to the bumper of her SUV as she pulled into the Lunch Box's parking lot.

Jennifer Wilson of Kinston was arrested and charged with Felony Cruelty to animals. She was placed in the Lenoir county Jail under a $15,000 bond.

Police say the dog is severely injured and has been turned over to the Lenoir County SPCA. The SPCA tells 9 On Your Side that the puppy has been placed with a foster family while it recovers.
