West Ham defender Kurt Zouma is facing three counts under the Animal Welfare Act for injuring his cat.
Zouma’s brother Yoan, who plays for Dagenham and Redbridge, has been charged with two charges under the RSPCA investigation.
23-year-old Yoan filmed 27-year-old Kurt kicking and hitting her pet.
The Zouma brothers will appear before the Thames Magistrates’ Court for their first hearing on Tuesday.
After the video was released in February, RSPCA removed two cats I left Kurt’s house and started contacting Essex police about the incident.
RSPCA continues to care for both cats.
Kurt was charged with inflicting “unnecessary pain” on the cat by kicking the cat’s abdomen and hitting the head.
He is also accused of failing to protect the cat from “pain, injury or disease.”
Yoan has been charged with two counts of “helping, instigating, consulting, or procuring” Kurt to commit the crime of inflicting unnecessary suffering on a cat.
Kurt was fined reported £250,000 And despite being eliminated by many sponsors, he continued to play for the Hammers.
Yoan has not played for Dagenham and Redbridge since 29 January.
