Bristol: A Connecticut man has been sentenced to 120 days in jail after police say he cut a pet fish in half during a domestic dispute.

The Bristol Press reports 33-year-old Juan Vega pleaded guilty Tuesday to breach of peace. As part of the plea deal, a charge of cruelty to animals was dropped.

 

Authorities say police responded to a call of a domestic disturbance at a Bristol home April 27.

Police say Vega argued with a woman and damaged property at the residence.

The woman's nine-year-old son told officers the family's pet betta fish was killed.

The prosecutor says the fish killing "really did traumatize" the child.
