Police arrested a naked man accused of throwing a cat from a seventh-floor window in front of horrified neighbors.

The suspect Gerardo Martinez, 30, denied having a cat, but later admitted to police that he was high on meth and had tried to have sex with the feline before he tossed it from his apartment in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Wednesday, The Daily Nonpareil reported.

Cops charged Martinez with bestiality, animal abuse and indecent exposure, a Pottawattamie County Jail official told The Huffington Post.

The unlucky cat was found bleeding and barely breathing near the building's sidewalk and later died from the fall, according to KCCI..

Martinez allegedly answered the door topless and with his pants down. Cops told KCCI that he initially tried to pin the crime on his roommate before confessing that he was the culprit.

Prosecutors might slap Martinez with additional charges, because he's a registered sex offender, according to a subsequent report by The Daily Nonpareil.
