Police have arrested a man Tuesday after he allegedly ate someone's pet inside an LSU dorm more than two years ago.
21-year-old Maxwell Taffin was arrested Tuesday and booked on animal cruelty and improper telephone communications charges.
Taffin and two of his friends stayed in one of the trio’s ex-girlfriend’s dorm room after the Ole Miss game.
the woman allowed Taffin inside to retrieve his belongings. As Taffin exited the room, he remarked to the victim that she should "check your fish tank" before hurrying out the door.
When the woman checked the tank, she noticed her pet fish was missing. She later showed police a photo she received from Taffin's phone following the encounter which showed feces in a toilet accompanied by the text "found your fish".
Taffin was later interviewed by police about the incident and admitted to swallowing the woman’s pet. He was then asked to appear at LSUPD for a criminal summons but failed to appear.
