I know this dosn't involve genitals but it's still sickMan Accused of Tossing Kittens From Car
HURON, Ohio May 20, 2005 — A part-time police officer has been accused of throwing two kittens out of a car while driving at 70 mph.
Derik Wilhelm, 26, is charged with two counts of animal cruelty and two counts of abandoning animals. The charges are misdemeanors that carry up to 90 days in jail.
Wilhelm is an officer in the village of Castalia, about 50 miles east of Toledo, and a ranger for Erie MetroParks.
A man called the Erie County Sheriff's Office around noon Tuesday to report seeing a driver in front of him throw two kittens out a window. The caller estimated the vehicle was doing 70 mph on state Route 2.
The caller reached dispatchers again about 30 minutes later to report seeing the man toss another kitten, this time on a street in Lorain. Police there stopped Wilhelm's car, according to the sheriff's office.
Authorities couldn't find any kittens at the first location, sheriff's Capt. Paul Sigsworth said. They found one kitten in Lorain and treated it for minor injuries.
Messages seeking comment were left on Friday for Wilhelm at both agencies and with relatives.
Jim Lang, chief of operations for the parks district, said Wilhelm denied the allegations.
"The only thing he says is it's not true, it didn't happen," Lang said.
Wilhelm is due in Huron Municipal Court next week.
