A Macon man was arrested late Sunday night after he beat and stabbed a puppy to death following an argument with his aunt, according to a warrant from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Derrick Chappell, 23, was jailed about 11:45 p.m. on charges including aggravated animal cruelty and possession of marijuana, records show. He remained in jail Monday evening on a $13,180 bond.
Chappell is accused of “repeatedly beating a puppy, causing massive damage to its skull, jaw and body,” according to the arrest warrant.
He did “stab the puppy repeatedly with a knife, severing its trachea and causing its death,” the warrant said.

The violent killing happened in the 2600 block of Florence Street South, which is near some dead-end roads just southeast of Eisenhower Parkway’s intersection with Second Street. The fatal attack on the puppy happened after Chappell had an argument with his aunt, who told him to “do something with the puppy,” the warrant said.
Chappell had run from the house by the time police arrived.
