Dimitri Diatchenko — an actor who has appeared on ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘2 Broke Girls’ — has been arrested and charged on suspicion of killing and eating his ex-girlfriend’s pet rabbit before threatening to do the same thing to his ex.
In a statement, the LA County District Attorney’s Office confirmed the 46-year-old faces one felony count of cruelty to an animal with the use of a knife and another felony count for allegedly making criminal threats.
He has yet to release a statement, but a Twitter account believed to be Diatchenko simply tweeted, “Not true.” earlier today, Dec. 11.

According to the DA, the actor and his ex continued to live together despite their romantic relationship ending. On Dec. 7, when his roommate wasn’t home, he allegedly killed, skinned, cooked and consumed the pet — while sending the woman pictures of the ordeal — before reportedly threatening to do the same to her.
He was taken into custody that same day and was released the next day after posting a $50,000 bond.
As a result, police have launched an investigation. He faces a maximum sentence of four years and eight months behind bars. He’s scheduled to be arraigned in court on Dec. 30.
