A Boynton Beach man is behind bars after police say he punched a pet rabbit. James Wertz was arrested late Friday and charged with animal cruelty and battery, according to Boynton Beach Police.
According to a Boynton Beach police arrest report, Wertz, 28, and Jongeward, 25, were arguing about women's rights just before 11:40 p.m. on Friday . . . Boynton Beach.
In an interview Tuesday, Jongeward said that Wertz was telling her it's man's world, a stance she was challenging. The argument flared, and Jongeward went to her bedroom to get away from Wertz, according to the arrest report. She said she was through with the relationship.
A short time later, the woman heard a high pitch coming from the living room, entered the room and saw Wertz "squeezing the rabbit and punching it," the report said.
Wertz was hitting the rabbit so hard that blood was coming from the rabbit's face, the report said.
The woman pushed Wertz away from the rabbit and began kicking him, the report said.
When Wertz saw her calling 911, he grabbed her and threw her across the room, the report said.
If I read the article correctly, it was a woman's rabbit. He got mad because she was being lippy, he pounded her rabbit. Tough rabbit or a weak man.
