"Cat Bong" Case in Court


A Lincoln man and his girlfriend, facing animal cruelty charges after putting a cat in a makeshift marijuana bong, were in court again Tuesday.

A hearing for 20-year-old Acea Schomaker has been set for June 30 in Lancaster County Court. A decision could be made then whether Schomaker's case will go to trial. A trial date was set for Schomaker's girlfriend, 22-year-old Marissa Vieux, who is also accused in the case. A jury trial for Vieux has been scheduled June 8.

Schomaker also faces other drug charges stemming from the March 1 incident.

Schomaker acknowledged to The Associated Press in an interview that he had smoked pot from the bong with a 6-month-old cat named Shadow inside. Schomaker says he was not being intentionally cruel, that he was just trying to calm the cat because she was hyper.
