In what was supposed to be one of the “violent outbursts” of a Florida student, he did the unthinkable by biting off a chicken’s head.
The suspect to the chicken’s death was identified as 17-year-old University High School student David Andrew Jimenez, who broke into a coop at his school campus over the weekend, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported on Tuesday.
A teacher found on Monday morning that several eggs have been thrown at the door gym, and more have been broken as he entered it. He then saw the headless chicken in the hallway, and he and a school administrator found the head at the coop.
A student told Volusia County Sheriff’s deputy that it was Jimenez who did the act and even bragged about it. When asked why he did it, Jimenez told the deputies that he had “violent outbursts.”
The chicken was supposed to be displayed at a farm-to-table event in the school, and was to be picked up by its owner on Monday.
Jimenez has been charged with animal cruelty and trespassing on school property. He was released to his parents, but was given a notice for him to appear in court yesterday. As of writing, no update has been released about his case. Katrina Hallare/JB
