Jamari Davenport, 22, of Atlanta, turned himself in to the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday, Atlanta police spokeswoman Stephanie Brown confirmed. His bond has been posted at $3,000, according to jail records.

The video allegedly showed Davenport violently kicking the cat outside a Chevron gas station in early July.

He has been charged with misdemeanor cruelty to animals, Brown said. The cat has still not been found, and the extent of the cat's injuries are unknown.

Tips received through CrimeStoppers Atlanta led to Davenport’s identification, leading to his arrest and indictment, Brown said.
