He may be too young to know who Ozzy Osbourne even is, but a Florida teen is accused of imitating one of the rocker’s moves.

Osbourne bit the head off a live bat at a concert in 1982. A teen from Orange City, Fla. allegedly bit the head off of another winged creature over the weekend: a chicken.

Police arrested David Andrew Jimenez, 17, and charged him on Tuesday with felony animal cruelty and trespassing on school property for allegedly attacking his high school’s chicken coop and biting the head off of one of the chickens. University High School was hosting a “Farm to Table” event on Saturday and it became a temporary home to a chicken coop. The chicken’s owner was supposed to pick up the fowl on Monday. Instead, the bird was ripped apart.

“Upon arriving on campus on Monday, a teacher discovered the headless body of a chicken in the parking lot,” police said in a Facebook post. “The chicken’s head was later discovered inside the chicken coop, and eggs had been thrown in the gym and against the gym doors.”

Someone tipped off a school resource deputy to the suspect’s identity. They said that Jimenez allegedly bragged about biting the head off of a live chicken. That information led to the teen’s arrest.

Police say he broke onto school grounds at 1 a.m. on Saturday and attacked the bird. According to an arrest report, Jimenez told police, "I have violent outbursts.”

After he was taken to the police station, police said Jimenez was turned over to his mother. He was in court on Wednesday.
