Former Leatherface Andrew Bryniarski Arrested for Suspicion of Animal CrueltyIn a truly sad and somewhat bizarre story making the rounds on the web today, Andrew Bryniarski (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) was arrested with his girlfriend this past Saturday for suspicion of animal cruelty.

TMZ reports that Bryniarski was arrested for animal cruelty in L.A. last week after cops said he was keeping 25 starving dogs inside his mobile home. Cops were dispatched to the actor’s motorhome in Santa Monica at 10:30 PM on September 8th after receiving multiple tips from a concerned neighbor who constantly heard the sound of crying dogs coming from Bryniarski’s property. When cops approached the home … no one was there … but officers say they could see several metal dog kennels containing roughly 15 small dogs, all Pomeranians. Cops say they also noticed there was no visible food or water for the dogs and the place smelled like urine.

Ultimately, the police say they found 25 dogs in the home and determined that they were not being properly cared for. Upon arriving home Bryniarski and his girlfriend were promptly arrested. Animal Control was called to remove the dogs from the premises.

Bryniarski made bail shortly afterward and claimed that these allegations were indeed false. According to Bryniarski, “We bought the RV as a mobile adoption unit about a week ago to find good, forever homes for the majority of the poms, all of which we have raised ourselves or rescued.” He added, “Nobody cares for my dogs better than I do, or finds them better homes. These are lies … and the only thing that smells like piss or maybe shit is the story from the Santa Monica Police Department.

Bryniarski claims the City of Santa Monica doesn’t want RVs posted up in the nice part of town and is doing anything it can to drive them out.

Bizarre indeed.

    Guess You never know about some people. He still plays an awesome Leatherface.

    How can you go from butchering travellers in the texas desert to abusing animals. That’s just low.

  • Vanvance1

    It’s possible he was making a deal with a Chinese restuarant to ‘adopt’ them all out. But I’m guessing that’s unlikely as Pomeranians don’t provide a lot of meat.

  • Jon Condit

    People close to him are saying he would never endanger his dogs. Many of his close friends are calling bullshit on this.

    The fact that Andrew used the term “forever home” a term used in the adoption and rescue industry is interesting and more than a few people have already come forward saying he was seeking to adopt the animals out not hoarding them.

    I think his intentions were noble, I don’t believe he was intentionally doing harm to these animals. At worst he was running an unlicensed shelter from what the reports say. Am curious whether TMZ will report on the health of the animals later.

    All in all I wont write the guy off without more to go on. If what he is saying is true than he was trying to do some good by these animals finding them safe homes.

    It’s possible he and his girlfriend are animal hoarders. If they did do this and neglect and starve those animals, they can go fuck themselves. But I’m going to wait on more information before making a judgment on Brynarski.

      110% agreed.

        Benefit of the doubt at the moment, but if he is guilty, then I hope the prick takes a chainsaw up the anus.
