When Cincinnati Police arrived at the scene they found the the dead kitten and arrested Witcher.
'He took the kitten by the tail and smashed it against the cement wall and killed it,' Assistant Cincinnati Prosecutor Heidi Rosales told Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg Monday.

Witcher was charged with domestic violence, cruelty to animals, obstructing official business, disorderly conduct and criminal damaging.
'I’m not a violent person,' Witcher told the judge. 'It wasn’t done on purpose.
'The cat had scratched me which caused me to have a bad reaction,' Witcher said, admitting he needed psychological help.
