The Texas Chainsaw Massacre star Andrew Bryniarski has been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty after police allegedly found 25 starving dogs in his trailer.
The 43 year old, who played Leatherface in the 2003 horror remake and its 2006 follow-up, was detained by cops last week (ends09Sep12) after a neighbour in Santa Monica, California reported hearing the sound of howling animals from his mobile home.
The officers who attended the scene on Saturday (08Sep12) allegedly discovered 25 dogs and puppies without food or water, and they arrested Bryniarski along with an unnamed woman on suspicion of animal cruelty, according to Tmz.com.
Members of Animal Control were called to take the dogs to safety.
Bryniarski was later released and is due in court on 20 September (12).
