Singer Jaheim has been arrested in New Jersey for allegedly starving his 12 dogs.
Jaheim has been charged with third-degree animal cruelty and failure to provide necessary care to an animal.
The Hillsborough Township Police Department says they responded to a report of “a puppy in distress.” When they arrived, they said they found six dogs in separate animal crates in his driveway.
The press release reads that the crates were “partially filled with several inches of water and dog feces.” One of the dogs was even unresponsive and had to be euthanized.

Police say nine dogs were found in “varying stages of emaciation, without access to food and water” inside the home.
12 mixed-breed pit bull terriers, two American Staffordshire terriers and one mixed-breed boxer were retrieved.
Jaheim went mainstream in 2001 with his first single “Just In Case.” His subsequent hits included “Anything” and “Fabulous.” His 2006 studio album “Ghetto Classics” charted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
