MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Dog is man's best friend, but that's not the case for one guy in Binghampton. 37 year old Daryl Sanders has been charged with animal cruelty after beating his dog in an AutoZone parking lot on Summer Avenue.

After several rings and several knocks in an attempt to find Daryl Sanders, a woman finally answered the door.

"Hi is there a Daryl here? No. You need to leave."

There's no sign of Sanders, who is now charged for beating his dog in an AutoZone parking lot March 18th. Nelitza Merritt says when Sanders returned to his car, he found his dog chewing on the drivers seat head cushion. She recorded what happened next on her cell phone.

"Uh-oh I'm going to kill him. He probably ain't busted a hole yet. I'm gonna beat your a____," said Sanders.

That's when the attacked occurred. Merritt confronted Sanders.

"It's not abuse or anything. Trust me," Sanders told her.

Merritt posted the video on YouTube and contacted police. CrimeStoppers tips led police to Daryl Sanders. They say he admitted to hitting the dog.

"I'm happy that they caught him," said Nelitza Merritt.

Daryl Sanders recently posted this on his Facebook page:
"For all you haters yes I wooped my dogs. The video looks way worse than the real thing. People should mind their own business."

"I'm in shock right now. The fact that he said that because the video speaks for itself. You can see in the video that he's punching the dog. Not only that, after he gets done punching the dog you can see him grabbing the dog by the neck and just throwing the dog into the seat, back down into the seat. Who does that to an animal?" asked Merritt.
