Lincoln, NE (The Weekly Vice) - Richard Anderson, a 22-year-old Nebraska man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly threw his roommate's cat into a washing machine, started it up and then video recorded the act while giggling at the spectacle that ensued.
According to Lincoln police, officers were dispatched to Anderson's residence Sunday after they were contacted by Anderson's roommate who told them he had abused her cat with a washing machine.
Investigators say the roommate confronted Anderson after learning he had placed her cat into an empty washing machine and then started it up to enjoy the show.
Anderson reportedly video taped the incident with his cell phone, which the roommate and police watched. In the video, Anderson reportedly placed the cat into an empty washing machine, and then turned it to 'spin cycle'.
A voice, believed to be Anderson, can be heard on the video stating "It's the spin cycle!"
After the washer stopped, Anderson could reportedly be heard saying "Kitty, come on kitty," as the cat stumbled inside the washer - clearly disoriented. Anderson then reportedly started the washer up again, and giggled as the abuse continued.
Anderson was booked into jail on a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty.
