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.

Jaheim surprised his fans when he dropped a video declaring his support for U.S. President Donald Trump.

The 42-year-old former R&B singer wrote a lengthy caption calling on his followers to do their research into the two political parties before casting their votes in November 2020.

"I already know this is gonna set a lot of you free once you do the research. Unless you are one of them? However it's really not my concern at this point I just wanna save our future & if that means losing followers so be it," he wrote.

The "Put That Woman First" singer continued:

"I'm used to the masses controlling these platforms, I'm used to you all throwing shade on me, called crackhead, uber driver etc. I can careless what you think of me because I have a real life, I am a force of the Most High Universal Creator.

Balance is about to be restored all the phoney [sic] people will soon fade away.
Again I do this for your/our future endeavors. I hate the fact that we all were so lost when it came to politics & we just decided to vote because our parents called themselves Democrats aka DIXIECRATS, all that stand for is nothing great for you/me."

Watch the video blow.
