On May 11 around 6:30 p.m. Natchez deputies received an anonymous call tipping them off about dog fighting happening at 507 Lasalle St. in Natchez.
Chatman has been charged with cruelty to animals.
Authorities say a third pit bull dog was running loose in the same area. The man holding the leash was identified as Charoyd Bell and the other was identified as Damien Green.
Officials say the dog Bell was holding on the leash had severe scarring on it’s face, head and body, along with swelling and fresh cuts. It's tongue had been partially bitten off, according to the report.
Fourteen other dogs were rescued, some in very poor condition. Investigators collected other evidence at the scene and got the animals to a safe location to be examined by a veterinarian.
No mention of Molly Bell, Charoyd Bell's wife, being charged (yet). She and Charoyd apparently run a pit bull breeding business called Square Bkisnis Kennels.
This is the second time Bell has been arrested on this type of charge.
On March 1, 2016 Bell was arrested for animal cruelty (carrying an animal in a cruel manner) after photos he posted to Facebook began circulating, outraging the public and catching police attention.
He's also posted pictures of dogs fighting each other on multiple occasions.
I can't even understand what he's written in that post. Clearly he didn't pay attention in school when they taught the kids how to read and write in ENGLISH.
