(NYPOST) — It was hardly a fair fight.
A 230-pound, washed-up TV screenwriter took out his anger on his 4 1/2-pound poodle — punching the pooch in the face so hard that it died from a brain injury, police said yesterday.
Ted Shuttleworth, 51 — who had a brief stint writing for “NYPD Blue” — was arrested yesterday morning at his home in Sunnyside, Queens.

Sources said Shuttleworth, who has worked for Steven Spielberg and now reads scripts for $300 a pop, allegedly decked little Lola on May 29 because he was angry at the pup.
