Guy Slices Pet Fish In Half, Gets 120 Days In Prison

 

A Connecticut domestic dispute ended with a man sentenced to 120 days in prison for murder … fish murder. The April incident began when Juan Vega, 33, showed up unannounced at his girlfriend’s home and a fight started, the Bristol Press reports. Police say he pushed the unidentified woman, kicked and broke a TV, gathered up his things, and left.

But after his departure, the victim found other damaged items throughout the home, and then officers spoke to her 9-year-old son—who told them the family’s beta fish had been sliced in half. Vega, who admitted to police he killed the fish, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree breach of peace Tuesday and was sentenced to 120 days in prison. The incident “really did traumatize the 9-year-old,” the prosecutor says.
