WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) -- A 37-year-old West Hollywood man legally named Sexy Vegan appeared in court Friday and denied an allegation of sexually assaulting his pet pit bull and posting an image of the act on social media earlier this month, authorities said.

Vegan, also known as Hansel Bartolo III, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of sexual assault on an animal and posting obscene matter, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Officials said in a written statement.

The charges stem from a video prosecutors said was posted to a social media account by Vegan on Sept. 5, “allegedly depicting inappropriate behavior with a pit bull,” according to the statement.

Vegan was ordered back to Los Angeles County Superior Court for a hearing on Oct. 10.
