Breana Shakari Smith, 19, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $3,000 bond. She is facing charges for battery and animal cruelty.

When the officer arrived, 19-year-old Krystina Shanice Sears said she had a fight with her girlfriend, Smith, and that Smith had thrown Sears' pet hamster "Boobie" from the balcony of her third-floor apartment, according to the probable cause affidavit.
