Chicago man Percy Love charged after police say he kicked a kitten like a football

CHICAGO -- The mother of a south side man charged with animal cruelty says she is stunned and embarrassed by her sons actions.

22-year-old Percy Love is charged with animal cruelty for kicking a cat like a football and then putting his arms in the air signaling a field goal.

Love's mother says her son was raised to love animals. She can only blame his actions on his ADHD and a post traumatic brain injury from an accident he had as a child.

The kitten is expected to recover.

Love is being held on $50,000 bail.
