2 Felony Second-Degree Assault

3 Felony Criminal Restraint

  • Threw a cat in the air and against a wall causing the cat to spin in the air, bounce off the wall, and fall to the ground.

  • Stuffed a sock into a cat's mouth thereby impairing the cat's breathing.

Barnett was booked on charges on August 8th and was ordered held on preventative detention.

The Grand Jury indictments will lead to arraignments on those allegations on October 17th in Hillsborough County Superior Court.
