Teen on video pepper spraying kitten not charged
The 17-year-old seen spraying a kitten with pepper spray will not be charged.
The Bristol Virginia Police Department presented a referral of probable cause to a juvenile intake worker at juvenile court. A juvenile intake worker has similar authority to a magistrate. The intake worker has decided not to continue with charges against the teenager.
Since this case involves a juvenile, there is no further information or details on decision available.
To give you an update on the kitten, it was treated and is in good condition. It has already been adopted and given the name “Peppy”.
