Phoenix Police have arrested a man whose dog died in the back of his hot car while he sat inside a sports bar for more than 4 hours.

Peter Belford parked outside Gallagher’s Sports Bar in Scottsdale, rolled down the rear windows about halfway, and went inside, leaving his Black Labrador alone in the car.

After 2 hours, Belford came outside to give the dog water. After another 2 hours, he returned to the car to find his dog had died.

Belford’s wife contacted police who arrested him on one count of animal cruelty.
