SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man accused of dumping a well-used cat litter box into a washing machine with another man's clothes in it has been charged.

The 49-year-old now faces two misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Police say the man told them he dumped the litter box "in spite" of another man after he found his wet laundry removed from a washer at a South Salt Lake coin-operated laundry.

However, court documents say the other man claims he removed the clothing so he could wash his own clothes. He also told police the wash cycle was finished.

Court documents say the used cat litter caused nearly $600 in damage to both the washer and the man's clothes.
