BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We told you earlier this year that 25-year-old Jordan Bean, who lives in the apartments at Mizner Park, was accused of torturing his roommate’s cat. Part of the alleged torture was caught on camera.
Bean was officially charged with a felony on Wednesday.
The State Attorney’s Office says it will prosecute Bean on one count of Felony Cruelty to Animals. Bean was released on his own recognizance.
For reasons we are attempting to clarify this morning, The State originally failed to pursue charges by a deadline of February 21st, but then reversed course on Wednesday. He remains free today.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A 25-year-old Boca Raton man faces animal cruelty charges after allegedly smothering and choking his roommate’s cat.
The attacks may be on videotape.
Jordan Scott Bean of Mizner Boulevard allegedly “choked and smothered” the cat “several times throughout the day,” according to a police report.
The cat, police tell BocaNewsNow.com, is fortunately just fine — showing no signs of serious injury when checked out by a veterinarian.
The roommate apparently suspected that Bean was doing something to the cat and placed a hidden, motion-sensitive camera in the apartment. The camera, police tell us, may show Bean choking and smothering the cat.
Bean was released on $3000 bond.
