Atlanta Man Who Kicked A Cat Like A Football Arrested!!!!!

posted by Terry J - 

Video of the cruel attack on a cat was widely seen on social media in early July — and now it’s led to an arrest, according to Atlanta police.

The video captured a man from the waist down as he ran up to a small orange cat and kicked the animal as if it were a football. That sent the cat flying into the air and out of the frame, before it comes crashing down onto the pavement, landing on its back. Then the cat clambers back to its feet, video shows.

The footage was first posted on Instagram, where it quickly sparked indignation, police said.

After the video went wild on social media, Atlanta authorities shared the footage online as well with an appeal for help to find the culprits — both the man who kicked the cat, and whoever filmed the video. A $2,000 reward was offered for tips that helped lead to an arrest.

And sharing the video paid off: Jamari Davenport, 22, has turned himself in at the Fulton County jail in connection with the incident, Atlanta police announced Wednesday.
