Mr Carr met an unnamed woman at a residence in Milton on Friday, to help paint the inside of a house, according to the arrest affidavit.
The woman brought two adult cats and a kitten with her, but got into an argument with Mr Carr at some point during the day.
After the argument escalated, Mr Carr threatened to burn the woman’s cats and proceeded to put the kitten into a black bucket outside the residence.
The 18-year-old then allegedly set a cereal box on fire with a blowtorch, and threw it into the bucket and onto the kitten’s head, according to the documents.
It was confirmed that the kitten was not seriously hurt in the incident, but had its whiskers singed.
The police were called and Mr Carr was booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail on Friday, with a $5000 (£4057) bail set.
Mr Carr was released on Friday, but a court date for his next hearing has not yet been confirmed by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office.
