MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) – Moss Point police say a 23-year-old woman has turned herself in to face charges related to a much-viewed video of a man pouring what appears to be hot liquid on a cat in a small cage.
Interim Police Chief Brandon Ashley tells news media that Karmen Coleman turned herself in Friday and was charged with criminal assistance. The charge carries up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Police and District Attorney Tony Lawrence say calls flooded in about the video.
The Sun Herald reports that police believe one or two men were involved.
