Local man charged with tossing cat around appears in court

SYLVANIA (WTVG) - An update to a case of alleged animal cruelty that sparked outrage in the community,

Bradly Rublaitus appeared in Sylvania Municipal Court Monday afternoon. A number of local animal advocates were there too.

Rublaitus is accused of tossing a cat around and asking if anyone wanted it at a Springfield Township apartment complex in August.
There is a short video of the incident.

A Good Samaritan stepped in and got the cat to The Lucas County Pit Crew. The rescue group has been caring for the cat ever since.

The cat's name is Henry. He will be up for adoption this week at an event at the PetSmart in Spring Meadows.

We asked Rublaitus if he wanted to talk with us about the incident, but he said he had no comment at this time. He's due back in court at the end of this month.
