Singer Jaheim has been arrested after more than a dozen dogs were found living in deplorable conditions at his New Jersey home, with one being euthanized following the grim discovery, according to officials.
The 44-year-old artist, born Jaheim Hoagland, has been charged with third-degree animal cruelty and failure to provide necessary care to an animal, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release.
On Monday, officers from the Hillsborough Township Police Department responded to a report of "a puppy in distress" at the R&B artist's home and discovered six dogs in separate animal crates on the property's driveway, according to prosecutors.
Officials said in the release that the animals were inside crates "partially filled with several inches of water and dog feces," and one dog was found unresponsive.
Hoagland had already been arrested on an unrelated matter outside of his home when police found nine more dogs in "varying stages of emaciation, without access to food and water" inside the residence, prosecutors said.
