Look, kids. If you're going to do something that is morally reprehensible (not to mention illegal) maybe don't film it?

Eighteen-year-old Trevonte Mitchell didn't exactly get that message. The Akron, Ohio teenager, who the Daily Mail refers to as a "thug," was arrested yesterday after admitting to kicking a cat on a viral video, according to police.

The video was originally posted on friend of Mitchell's Facebook page, but the footage later made its way to the Ohio Animal Abuser List's community Facebook page, where local police caught wind of it.

The cat landed on its feet but Mitchell, was charged with cruelty to an animal, didn't. Captain Daniel Zampelli told NewsNet5 the teen will likely receive a fine and community service instead of jail time.
