22-year-old Matthew James Selk from Largo, Florida apparently has a thing for cats. Wednesday night he grabbed his girlfriend’s cat Jezebel by the neck and punched it several times saying that he was going to shut the cat up according to the police report.
After mistreating the cat he stuck it in his backpack and left his girlfriend’s apartment. When he came back later the cat wasn’t with him. She his girlfriend came home she found blood in her bedroom and called the police after Selk told her he had dropped the cat in a dumpster behind an Outback Steakhouse. Law Enforcement was not able to locate the cat and after his arrest Selk hinted around to police that he might have dismembered the cat.
He was arrested earlier Thursday morning and faces a charge of animal cruelty and is being held in the Pinellas County jail on $10,000 bond. Damn, he needs to face a charge of ugly hair as well. This isn’t Matt’s first brush with the law either. He’s been arrested twice before in the last two years, both times for Petit theft. His other two mug shots are just as freakish.

Oh by the way, if you live in Pinellas County, don’t go out for steak for a couple of days.
