UPDATE OCTOBER 18, 2016 9:42 A.M. EST: Sources tell us that Vikram Chatwal has JUST been arrested. We hope justice is served HARD for such a disgusting crime. We’ll keep you in the loop as more details emerge!
What. The. F*ck.
Lindsay Lohan‘s infamous former party pal Vikram Chatwal, who has a long history of drug problems, is under investigation by the NYPD for attempting to light two dogs (not belonging to him) on FIRE last week.
Witnesses and law enforcement say the disgusting incident went down on Friday afternoon when professional dog walker Isabell Suquilanda strolled past Chatwal’s residence with the pups.
We’re hearing the Manhattan hotelier began screaming in a foreign language before using a lighter and aerosol can to blow flames at the terrified animals. OMG.
“They must die!”
Witnesses are said to have jumped in to separate Chatwal from the pets, who suffered minor burns.
One eyewitness Roxanne Robles told The Post:
“I was walking down the street, and I saw this guy crouching and aggressively circling this woman and the dogs screaming at them, with a lighter and aerosol can spraying fire on the dogs. I was screaming my head off, `What the f*ck are you doing?!’ I interrupted it. It was like a fire- breathing dragon, shooting out flames 2 to 3 feet long. This isn’t OK. You can’t walk the streets lighting dogs on fire and think your life can go on as usual.”
A man who works in the community says he chatted with Chatwal following the alleged attack:
“The guy was muttering, he was telling me he was on anti-depressants. He said he has ticks and fleas in his apartment and he blames the dogs.”
Fortunately, other witnesses shot footage on their cell phones which will hopefully hope charge Chatwal for these despicable acts.
