UPDATE: Teen in Cat-Throwing Viral Video Arrested

Earlier this week, we reported that Ontario, California police were investigating an animal cruelty case in which a 16-year-old boy was recorded throwing a cat named Spots into the street. The horrific video was posted to the social media site Snapchat and quickly went viral, quickly causing outrage among animal lovers everywhere.

At the time of the original story, an arrest had not been made and the investigation was ongoing. But now we have an update! Ontario police released a statement saying they arrested a suspect who ran from officers before being tackled:

The boy, who is from Ontario, was booked into San Bernardino County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of felony animal abuse. The cat suffered a fractured leg and may have had some internal injuries but is in good condition and recovering at the Inland Valley Humane Society.

So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
