WACO - An FBI agent based in Waco has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

Agent Lovett Leslie "Les" Ledger, Jr. was arrested and booked into McLennan County Jail and has been released on $3,000 bond.

According to Arrest Affidavits, a county investigator dispatched to Estes Road in reference to a dog that was shot and killed.

The affidavit mentions that on February 29, Ledger shot a Chihuahua that was walking in front of his house. After being shot, the dog ran into a neighbor's yard where it died.
