DECATUR —​ A man was arrested Sunday following a fight over a cat being shot with a BB gun, police said.

Police were called to an assault complaint in the 1400 block of East Johns Avenue at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.

A 19-year-old man told police he was awakened by the 51-year-old suspect, who lives in the same residence, accusing him of shooting the cat and threatening to stab him, Sgt. Chris Copeland said. A woman broke up the fight after the 19-year-old grabbed a baseball bat, police said.

The 51-year-old is facing preliminary charges of aggravated assault/deadly weapon, which is subject to review by the Macon County State's Attorney's Office.

He is being held in lieu of $1,000.
