A Gainesville man is accused of killing a parrot after an argument with his girlfriend got out of hand, the Gainesville Sun reports.
According to an arrest report, the man told a policeman: "It's my parrot. I can do whatever I want with it. I threw it so I wouldn't hit my girlfriend."
Luis Enrique Quinones, 25, was charged with animal cruelty, and Myres Luanny Thomas, 29, was charged with simple assault and battery. Both were arrested early Thursday morning.
