Tuscaloosa PD: Man sentenced in animal cruelty case involving puppies
Blane Austin Colburn was charged with first-degree animal abuse in relation to a video that was reported in July 2020.
Investigators said at some point in the video he was seen throwing puppies up against a bathroom wall.
Colburn, then 21, turned himself in at the Tuscaloosa County Jail.
Detectives said they determined the dogs in the video did not belong to Colburn.
Officers said one of the puppies suffered bruised ribs, but made a full recovery. Colburn will be on probation for three years after he is released in November, according to Tuscaloosa PD.
