MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - Mason City police have arrested a 28-year-old man accused of throwing a kitten against a wall, killing the animal.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/24hzMqU ) that Jerrick Rinnels was arrested Sunday afternoon on a warrant for misdemeanor animal abuse. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Rinnels’ behalf.

Police say Rinnels and another resident in a Mason City house were arguing early Friday morning when Rinnels grabbed the kitten from the resident and threw it against the wall.

The kitten died before it could be taken to a veterinarian.
