I don’t think I can ever eat rabbit again.
Dimitri Diatchenko, who has featured in multiple television shows like Sons of Anarchy and 2 Broke Girls, was arrested and charged for apparently eating his ex-girlfriend’s pet rabbit and threatening to do the same to her, according to the NY Daily News.
Diatchenko and his ex-girlfriend had broken up months ago, but were apparently still living together, despite no longer being a couple. His ex-girlfriend allegedly decided they needed to live separately and no longer be roommates, which spurred Diatchenko’s Hannibal-esque eating rampage.
According to E! Online and the Los Angeles Country District Attorney’s Office, the actor was officially charged with one count of animal cruelty with the use of a knife and another felony count for allegedly making threats.
As if skinning and eating the pet bunny wasn’t enough, Diatchenko also took step-by-step photos of the incident, which he then sent to his ex along with the threats.
Though Diatchenko has yet to officially comment on the incident, he did post a tweet apparently denying the incident and the charges.
Police are still investigating, but prosecutors also confirmed to E! Online that, if convicted, Diatchenko could face up to four years and eight months in jail.
A bunny wasn’t the only pet in the Diatchenko household. The actor also owns a English bulldog, which he shares multiple photos of on social media.
Hopefully, he likes the dog more than he liked the rabbit.
Diatchenko’s other television credits include Bones, Burn Notice and Walker, Texas Ranger, and film credits, The Chernobyl Diaries and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
It seems his bad boy persona also translates off screen.
