James Orr Attacks Mom's Cat, Cops, Then Gets Tasered

Welcome to the most batshit-crazy story you'll see all day.

James Orr, who probably won't be the face of any PETA campaigns anytime soon, is in trouble with the law for a small mountain of questionable actions. The mentally ill 36-year-old was apparently upset about his mother's cat, and when she suggested that he leave her house, he responded by choking the cat and throwing it against the wall.

Mom then called the cops.

When they showed up Orr barricaded himself in the apartment with a shotgun. Mom let the officers in, which is when Orr started attacking them.

According to 19 Action News:

Officers tried to search Orr for the weapon and that's when he started to attack. Officers managed to wrestle Orr to the ground in the hallway, where he continued to struggle. Two cops then deployed their tasers in order to subdue the unruly man.

After cuffing Orr, cops found a loaded shotgun propped up against the kitchen wall in the apartment.

The cat suffered an injured paw and breathing problems, and is now recovering.

Orr has been charged with domestic violence, animal cruelty, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer.

No word on how he feels about dogs or birds.
