A 16-year-old New Jersey teen has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty after he killed a squirrel with a skateboard, Police Chief David A. Paprota said.

An investigation by a Lacey Township Police officer indicated that the teen was being chased after he had just purposely killed a gray squirrel with a skateboard, Paprota said.

The juvenile suspect was taken into custody and charges have been forwarded to the juvenile court for the cruelty, police said.
