Joseph Petcka, who played a minor role on "Sex and the City," claimed he killed his girlfriend Lisa Altobelli's cat Norman in self-defense. The only problem? The seven-pound tabby cat was actually declawed. Petcka was overcome with jealousy of Norman, and told Altobelli that he believed she loved the cat more than him. One night, Petcka assaulted Altobelli and she fled, but the cat was left behind with Petcka, who reportedly beat the animal into a pulp. The case ended in a hung jury. Ironically (unbelievably ironically), his IMDB profile claims he's appeared in both "What Women Want" and "Gratuitous Violence."
