HOUSTON (AP) - A Chihuahua is recovering after police say she was thrown against the window of a Starbucks store in Houston.

KHOU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1w5BJcw ) that the dog suffered a broken back leg after being injured Oct. 21.

Authorities have charged Larry McHale with cruelty to animals. He is jailed on a $15,000 bond.

Starbucks manager Jasmine Hyder says McHale had been banned from the store for harassing customers.

Witnesses said the 47-year-old McHale was yelling and smashed a bottle before the incident.

Police are not sure if the dog belongs to McHale.

The dog, which has been named “Starbucks,” is being cared for by Frisky Paws Rescue, a local nonprofit.

The group is asking for donations to help with the dog’s estimated $1,000 medical costs.
