LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man who was caught on video running over his estranged wife’s Chihuahua has pleaded no contest to animal cruelty.

Prosecutors say Michael Parker entered the plea Friday and faces 16 months in prison under the plea deal.

Authorities say Parker took the 5 ½-year-old dog, named Cow Cow, to a Hawthorne alley last Dec. 28, ran it over and left the dog to die.

A nearby resident found the dog and put its body in a bag. Police says they tracked down the car from surveillance camera video and Parker was arrested a few days later.
