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.

According to authorities, Abad surrendered the dog - a black male Labradoodle named Steeler - to staff at Center-Sinai Animal Hospital Wednesday night. Steeler has since been placed with Orange County Animal Care where he will be examined by a veterinarian to determine his condition.
