Kiss - Vinnie Vincent Not Facing Animal Cruelty Charges
Former Kiss star Vinnie Vincent will not face legal action over a number of dead dogs found at his home following his arrest at the weekend (21-22May11), according to a U.S. report.
The guitarist - real name Vincent Cusano - was detained by cops and charged with aggravated assault on Sunday (23May11) following an alleged bust-up with his wife Diane Cusano at the couple's property in Tennessee. He was later released on $10,000 (£6,250) bail.
When cops attended the scene at the house, they claim to have found four dead dogs packed up in plastic containers, and animal cruelty officials were called in to investigate.
The star's wife is said to have confirmed the animals were killed by another one of the couple's pet pooches, and investigators at the Pet Adoption Welfare Services (Paws) have now dropped the case, according to Tmz.com.
