His arrest came after officials from the Hillsborough Township Police Department responded to a call about a "puppy in distress" and found a total of six dogs in separate animal crates in the driveway of a Chamberlain Drive residence.

The report also stated that a pitbull terrier mix was "initially unresponsive in a water filled crate and subsequently had to be euthanized".

Inside, additional dogs were found in separate crates "partially filled with several inches of water and dog feces". A total of 14 animals were released to Long Hill Kennel in Hillsborough, New Jersey.

A court hearing on the matter is pending.

Jaheim is best known for his 2001 debut album, Ghetto Love. The album went platinum and spawned the hits "Ghetto Love", "Just in Case" and "Anything" ft. Next.
