Anaheim animal abuse suspect posts bond, released from custody
ANAHEIM, Calif. - A man accused of animal cruelty in Anaheim posted bond and has been released from custody, the Orange County District Attorney's Office said Monday.
Albert Frank Abad Jr., 33, of Anaheim, posted $25,000 bond and was released Friday, officials said.
Abad surrendered to police in Anaheim a day before he was released after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The warrant came after shocking video showed a man - later identified as Abad - kicking and repeatedly hitting a dog inside an Anaheim apartment complex.
