A Virginia man is in police custody after authorities say he became so enraged that his girlfriend’s pet kitten disconnected his video game that he picked it up and threw it against a wall killing it instantly.
21-year-old Bruce Walston was arrested Monday for the crime after his girlfriend called police.
Virginia police report that Walston began arguing with the woman after the animal accidentally disrupted his gaming session.
When the argument got heated Walston reportedly grabbed the animal and threw it into the wall in front of the woman’s children.
When police arrived the dead cat was laying on the front porch.
He faces charges of animal cruelty and disorderly conduct.
He was previously arrested for assaulting two people at his apartment building and beating one of them with a vacuum sweeper.
