Barking Mad

A US man who legally changed his name to ‘Sexy Vegan’ has been arrested and charged after uploading an explicit video of himself sexually assaulting his dog.

Vegan, born Hansel Marion DeBartolo III, was arrested in Los Angeles after detectives found the video to be of inappropriate behaviour with an animal. Animal control officers later removed two dogs from the man’s home.

Shirley Miller of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office said: “Detectives found a video on social media of the suspect performing an act of bestiality.”

The 37-year-old has pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual assault on an animal and has told officers his occupation is “2020 Presidential Candidate”, which turned out to be inaccurate.

The charge of sexual assault on an animal is not the first of Vegan’s peculiar antics. He has also been in the headlines for previously appearing on the Dr Phil show, in an episode entitled “My brother changed his name to ‘Sexy Vegan’, wears speedos in public and is spending my mom’s $11 million inheritance.”

Vegan’s childish and immature behaviour resulted in him clashing with Dr Phil and being removed from the show.
