ST. CHARLES  • A 21-year-old man who got into an argument with his girlfriend is in custody after he apparently took his anger out on her pet kitten.

Tyrell Devon Griffin, 21, of the 11000 block of Jerries Lane in Florissant, was charged this week with misdemeanor animal abuse. His bail is set at $10,000.

The incident happened in October. According to police, Griffin grabbed the kitten "while in a vengeful rage" and threw it against a wall. When he realized he had seriously hurt the animal, he fled from the apartment on Fox Chase Drive in St. Charles. 

Griffin's girlfriend rushed the kitten to an animal hospital, but it died a short time later.
