Valley man arrested after dog dies in hot car

A man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after his dog died in a hot car.

Police say Peter Belford left his dog in a hot car for hours while he was inside a sports bar. Belford left windows cracked in the car and he told police he brought his dog water from inside the bar.

When Belford found the dog dead in the car, he poured water on the animal, but did not take it to a veterinarian.
