Man Kills Cat Over Video Game

JUNE 2--A Virginia man allegedly killed a kitten after the animal somehow disconnected a video game while he was playing it Monday night, police charge.

Bruce Walston, 21, is facing an animal cruelty charge for allegedly killing his girlfriend's black kitten by throwing it against a wall in their apartment, according to this Staunton Police Department report. Walston was arrested after his girlfriend, Bessie Hess, called cops about the incident, which occurred in front of her children. Walston told cops that he was 'arguing with Bessie over the cats disconnecting his video game at which time he picked up the kitten and threw it against the wall.'

When police arrived at the couple's home, the dead pet 'was laying on the front porch.' Walston, pictured in the mug shot at right, was charged with animal cruelty and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. He was booked into the Middle River Regional Jail, where he is being held without bond. (2 pages)
