Lattimer from 'The Program'

Arrested for Animal Cruelty

9/12/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

People who abuse/neglect animals are heartless souls. I do hope karma will settle the score someday.

How come all these abusers with either starving kids and/or starving animals are always so over-fed themselves? Doesn't look like Lattimer missed too many meals. It's a frikkin' pity the same can't be said for the dogs.

with 25 dogs they wil be barking,he didn`t so to say abuse them he just could`nt or didn`t take proper care of one or all of them.He was`nt beating them killing them but started hording most likey his girls freinds dogs.But he should`nt have them or ever be allowed to ever have any pets what so ever.City people don`t know spit about abuse check out some rancher whom doen`t take proper care of lets say 200 head of cattle horses and dogs cats chickens so on than you wil see why some people should enevr be alowed to raise live stock or have pets

What a looser...and the women must really be a looser to be with someone that's cruel to animals. They both obviously need some mental help (hoarding). So much for Capital One money.
Disgraceful humans.

He's probably more well known for his other roles than The Program. He was Chip in Batman Returns, Leatherface in the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
