Atlanta police arrested a man who was allegedly filmed kicking a cat in an Instagram video.
Jamari Davenport, 22, of Atlanta, turned himself in to the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday, Atlanta police spokeswoman Stephanie Brown confirmed. His bond has been posted at $3,000, according to jail records.
The video allegedly showed Davenport violently kicking the cat outside a Chevron gas station in early July.
Tips received through CrimeStoppers Atlanta led to Davenport’s identification, leading to his arrest and indictment, Brown said.
