BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A Boynton Beach man was trying to teach his cat a lesson when he fired his gun, but the efforts landed him in jail.
Police say 43-year-old Robert Taylor was upset that his cat used his bed instead of a litter box. So Taylor took the cat to the garage and fired a handgun into a flotation device to "scare it." The cat was not injured, but Taylor is now charged with shooting in an occupied dwelling and using a firearm while under the influence.
He's being held on a $5,000 bond.
