EXCLUSIVE

Andrew Bryniarski mug shot -- AKA Lattimer
Andrew Bryniarski -- the guy who played 'roid raging maniac Lattimer in "The Program" -- was arrested for animal cruelty in L.A. last week after cops say he was keeping 25 starving dogs inside his mobile home.

TMZ has learned ... cops were dispatched to the actor's motorhome in Santa Monica at 10:30 PM on Sept. 8 ... after receiving multiple tips from a concerned neighbor who constantly heard the sound of crying dogs coming from Lattimer's pad. 

When cops approached the home ... no one was there ... but officers say they could see several metal dog kennels containing roughly 15 small dogs (Pomeranians).

Cops say they also noticed there was no visible food or water for the dogs. Plus, the place smelled like dog piss.

According to police, Lattimer and a female arrived to the home shortly after the police ... and admitted the dogs belonged to them.

Ultimately, cops say they found 25 dogs in the home ... and determined they were not being properly cared for. In fact, cops say several of the dogs and puppies appeared to be sick.

Both Lattimer and the woman were arrested for animal cruelty -- and Animal Control was called to remove the dogs from the premises.

Lattimer and the woman were hauled to a nearby jail -- where they were booked and later released.

Calls to the actor have not been returned.

Hope they put him in a cage (not just a jail cell) and leave him with no food or water!
Animal abusers are right up there with pedophiles and child abusers- taking advantage of some one/thing that is dependent on you. Preying on little souls who have nothing but love to give.
Help the Humane Society or SPCA in your area, they are always in need of different kinds of food, blankets, volunteers to help out, and monetary donations.

Son of a bitch, he was great in Bloodsport. I hope he and his woman are locked away in cages without food and water for a while.

Being cruel to poor defenceless animals is unspeakably abhorrent. I hope they are never allowed to keep animals again. He looks like a mean SOB.

Uhhh, what a tough guy. He showed these helpless animals who the boss is!

To every son of a bitch out there:

brutality is NOT the same as toughness
and deadness is NOT the same as boldness.

You are all *******.

I heard of a cat women but I never heard of a dog man. This is just sick. Why would you do something like that? What's the point? He has to be mental.

TMZ... There is a HUGE difference between a MOTORHOME and a MOBILE HOME. Either get the facts right, or leave out what you don't know.
