A woman captured on surveillance hitting her lap dog in a Manhattan elevator won't have to go to jail if she goes without pets for at least five years and meets other requirements.

Tiara Davis pleaded guilty Wednesday to disorderly conduct.

A judge agreed to close her case without jail time or probation if she meets certain conditions: Including the pet ban, anger-management training and 100 hours of community service.

Animal-welfare investigators say the 31-year-old Davis was recorded pummeling her 10-pound Pomeranian, named Sparky, and swinging him by his leash in an elevator in her building in January.

The 4-year-old dog suffered bruises and possible liver damage.

An arrest report says Davis told investigators she felt she wasn't really going to hurt Sparky.
