Just weeks after a video of him assaulting a dog went viral, ‘Black Ink’ actor Ceaser Emanuel surrendered to police in connection to animal cruelty charges.
A spokeswoman for the City of South Fulton PD in Georgia told TMZ that Emanuel turned himself in. According to prison records, Emanuel faces two misdemeanor animal cruelty charges and one felony animal cruelty charge.
Ceaser was terminated from “Black Ink Crew” immediately after the viral release of the video showing him striking a dog with a metal chair. Emanuel’s counsel claims the video was shot during COVID lockdown and may have been released by an ex-girlfriend with a grudge against Ceaser.
Cops have not officially verified whether the charges are related to the abuse video, but we know that South Fulton investigators were checking into the incident, so it is likely the case.
Whether the video was leaked or not, there is no excuse for animal abuse, but Ceaser believes the video does not represent his true character, claiming he was merely attempting to stop a fight amongst his animals.
Since the recording of the video, Ceaser informs us that he no longer has one of the dogs, as he gave it to a friend.
