C-List Actor Arrested for Allegedly Hoarding Dogs in Urine-Scented Mobile Home

Actor Andrew Bryniarski and his girlfriend, Jennifer Abram, were arrested Saturday on suspicion of animal cruelty for allegedly hoarding 25 dogs in their Santa Monica mobile home.
If you're not sure who Bryniarski is, don't worry; his name didn't ring a bell for us either. The now 43-year-old played a steroid-using football player in 1993's "The Program," or as TMZ described the character, "roid raging maniac Lattimer." He also played Leatherface in 2006's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" and plays Mad Dog on the TV series "Chopper."
The arrest took place Saturday around 10:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of Third Street, which is part of SaMo's Ocean Park neighborhood, reports City News Service. Police responded to a neighbor's complaint of dogs barking and crying in a motor home, and when they arrived, say found the door to the home ajar and "several stacks of dog kennels with multiple dogs in each kennel," Sgt. Richard Lewis told CNS. Lewis noted that the home reeked of urine.
During the search, Bryniarski and Abram, 34, returned to their home with several more pooches—all of which have been seized by animal welfare officials. Described as Pomeranians, several of the dogs "appeared sick and starving," officials told the gossip publication. Responding officers were reportedly unable to see whether or not the animals had food or water at the time of the arrest..."  More
