Charles Arechiga Snapchat cat throwing video: What led to a 16 year old Ontario, California youth throwing a defenseless kitten into the street? Outrage ensues?

Charles Arechiga a 16 year old Ontario, California boy has been arrested after the teen was captured on a Snapchat video throwing a cat into the street (see below).

The nypost reported the teen boy being arrested come Monday, with the youth trying to make a run for it when he saw officers approaching him, before being tackled and taken into custody. Upon his arrest Arechiga was booked on suspicion of animal cruelty.

The teen’s arrest comes after police were tipped off about the video, which has since gone viral.

Cops say the boy intentionally threw the cat into the street with the animal suffering a fractured leg. The cat, a kitten named ‘Spots’ is expected to recover.

Told the cat’s owner, Perla via NBC4, I just want him to know he hurt a victim that can’t defend itself.’

Spots was once a stray, before being found a few months ago according to the cat’s owner.

Charles Arechiga Ontario, California teen: A history of violence?

Offered local neighbor, Oscar Ramovia CBSLA, ‘He hangs around here in the alley all the time,’

Adding, ‘They think they’re cool. He probably did it just to look cool on video.’

A report via everipedia noted the youth attending AB Miller High School​ where he is currently a senior. It wasn’t clear if the student had prior run ins at school?

Not necessarily understood is what led to the teen electing to abuse the defenseless animal and whether Arechiga thought he was just being ‘funny’ or ‘having some fun’?

Animal abuse and cruelty in young children and teens according to one study cited by huffpo, is often the beginning of most violent offenders’ criminal legacy—particularly rapists, serial killers, and domestic abusers.
