A Rhode Island man has been charged with a felony after driving his Audi into a flock of seagulls, killing three of them.
The Westerly Sun reports that 19-year-old Hunter Latham of Westerly is charged with maliciously killing or wounding animals in a parking lot at Misquamicut State Beach.
Police say witnesses saw the Audi rev its engine then drive through the flock at a high rate of speed on Sunday.
According to a police report, Latham told an officer he thought it "would be funny to drive through a flock of seagulls, scare them and watch them fly away." He acknowledged accidentally striking one of them, the report said.
Latham turned himself in and was released pending a court date. He did not immediately return a call for comment.
