Mississippi: Georgia Chatman, 29, arrested as part of a dog fighting ring, say police

MISSISSIPPI -- The Adams County Sheriff’s Department has arrested another person in connection with an alleged dog fighting ring.

Deputies arrested Georgia Ivrione Chatman Monday. She is charged with cruelty to animals in connection with the incident that led to the arrest of Charoyd Boyd on May 11.

Note: In original article, he was identified as Charoyd Bell who ran a pit bull breeding business with his wife Molly Bell called Square Bkisnis Kennels.


Authorities said on May 11, they received several calls about dog fighting that was happening at 507 Lasalle Street in the Natchez city limits.

When deputies arrived, they said they heard distressful yelps and howls coming from the bayou next to the residence.

As they approached the residence, Georgia Chatman made contact with the deputies and was later arrested on an active warrant that she had with the Natchez Police Department.

Deputies continued to follow the sounds and discovered it was coming from dogs.


As they entered the bayou, the deputies observed two black males in the area where the howls were coming from. One of the males was holding a pit bull on a leash which was facing another pit bull that was wearing a harness tethered to a tree. A third pit bull was also running loose in the area unrestrained.

The male holding the pit bull on the leash was identified as Charoyd Bell and the other male, who was sitting on the ground, was identified as Damien Green.

The dog on the leash had severe scarring on its face, head, and body, along with swelling and fresh cuts. It was also bleeding and its tongue had been partially bitten off.

Both subjects were then escorted out of the bayou, and Charoyd Bell was placed under arrest for Felony Cruelty to Animals- Dog fights.

More than a dozen dogs were rescued, some of which were in very poor condition.  Authorities said the dogs from this incident appear to be doing fine.

A year ago, Charoyd Bell aka Charoyd Boyd was charged with animal cruelty for abusing puppies and posting photos online. He was suspected of dog fighting, but it appears nothing came of their suspicions.  


Is that even English? I can't understand any of it.
