"Leatherface" Arrested for Hoarding Pomeranians

That's certainly an unexpected headline


Cops arrested Texas Chainsaw Massacre star Andrew Bryniarski—who played Leatherface in the 2003 remake and has appeared in dozens of other TV shows and films, generally very dark ones—on the night of September 8 after getting calls from concerned neighbors in the 2300 block of Third Street, says SMPD spokesman Richard Lewis.

"At least two residents heard numerous dogs… yelping, barking and whining" inside Bryniarski's mobile home, according to Richard Lewis.

When they searched the RV, police say they found 25 pomeranians, a stench of urine and a bunch of trash. So they arrested Bryniarski and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Jennifer Abram, on one count each of misdemeanor animal cruelty.
