A Maryland man angry because his internet service wasn’t working was jailed after he allegedly threw a cat out of the second-story window of a Cumberland apartment and punched a female family member in the face, according to Cumberland Police.
Officers responded to the apartment at around 8:30 a.m. and told Timothy Spiker, 32, to refrain from causing problems.
After police left, Spiker allegedly continued to argue with family, threatened them and then grabbed the cat. When he went after a dog, a struggle occurred, resulting in the alleged assault.
Spiker was charged with second-degree assault, two counts of disorderly conduct and animal cruelty and was held in the Allegany County Detention Center on $7,500 bond.
