Man whose legal name is Sexy Vegan allegedly sexually assaults dog

2019-09-30

A man who has dubbed himself the Sexy Vegan – and even changed his legal name – has taken the notion of puppy love a bit too far, according to charges filed against him in Los Angeles.

Hansel DeBartolo III, 37, who has legally changed his name to Sexy Vegan, was charged with sexually assaulting his dog, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

DeBartolo, of West Hollywood, pleaded not guilty after being charged with one misdemeanor count each of sexual assault on an animal and posting obscene matter.

On Sept. 5, “Vegan posted a video on his social media account allegedly depicting inappropriate behavior with a pit bull,” the prosecutors said.

“Detectives found a video on social media of the suspect performing an act of bestiality,” Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Shirley Miller told KHTS-TV. The investigation is still active and ongoing.”

Arrested Thursday, he pleaded not guilty on Friday, with bail set at $35,000. He’s next due in court Oct. 10 and could face a year in county jail, prosecutors said.

Two dogs were confiscated, Miller told KHTS.

The suspect was already on probation for a separate charge in another jurisdiction, KHTS reported.

Sexy Vegan has appeared on the “Dr. Phil Show” twice – once being escorted off by security, scantily clad, after an expletive-laden rant, and a second time when he apologized for said rant. He has described himself as a 2020 presidential candidate, reported KTLA-TV.
