    Facebook video lands suspect in jail

    EL DORADO — Darrell L. Love, 33, of El Dorado, was arrested Tuesday after a series of events that stemmed from Love being tagged in a Facebook video of a local dogfight.

    He is being charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal and unlawful animal fighting, both class D felonies. He made his first appearance on Wednesday with Union County District Court Judge Jack Barker presiding.

    “If the facts are true, I see this as a heinous act,” Barker said. “You will have no possession of any animals during the course of this case.”

    On Jan. 3, Union County Animal Control Officer Charles Hartsell told police about two people involved in a video sent to him from Union County Animal Protection Society. Love was tagged in a Facebook video uploaded by Charles Taylor — Facebook alias: Taylor Made — that showed Love and Taylor facing the dogs and releasing them to fight, according to the El Dorado Police Department.

    Hartsell confirmed that he also showed investigators photographs of the Facebook post and the string of comments that followed.

    Detective Ryan Landers investigated further into the case and later arrested Love on Tuesday near the 1100 block of Wilson Street. Prior to the search Love told Landers he had a small bag of marijuana in his right pants pocket, and is facing a misdemeanor drug possession charge, according to the report.

    He is being held in lieu of a $10,000 cash or corporate surety bond and is bound to circuit court for further proceedings.
