Police said a 22-year-old Lincoln man has been accused of running a cat through the spin cycle of a washing machine. Officer Katie Flood said police were called to a home on Sunday by the roommate of Richard Andersen.

Flood says the roommate found a video on Andersen's cell phone of Andersen putting the cat, named Delilah, into the washing machine. She said Andersen can be heard saying "it's the spin cycle."

Delilah survived the ordeal, but Andersen was cited for animal cruelty.

Associated Press attempts to reach Andersen on Tuesday were unsuccessful. A Lincoln phone number listed for him was no longer in service.
