IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A West Liberty man who pleaded guilty for torturing a cat is facing more charges for a different crime. 

Police pulled over Leo Nopoulos early Sunday morning for a burnt-out headlamp in Iowa City.

A criminal complaint said he smelled of alcohol.

A breath test showed Nopoulos was over the legal limit.

The complaint also said police found cocaine in a folded $20 bill inside his wallet.

Nopoulos has been charged with operating under the influence and possession of a controlled substance. 

Last fall, police arrested him for allegedly abusing his roommate's cat.

Video recorded by the roommate shows him torturing it for more than three hours.
