An arrest has been made in the brutal whipping of a horse in Conecuh County.

Shaquille Tucker is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.

Authorities say he's the man seen in a now viral Snapchat video, mercilessly beating a horse.

The Conecuh County Sheriff's Office says there could be additional charges.

They're also interviewing the female who captured the video.

NBC 15 has reached out to the Conecuh County Sheriff's Department multiple times after this story aired, about Shaquille Tucker and whether he has bonded out of jail and whether or not the horse was returned to him. We have not heard back.
