Before this, he had allegedly had a verbal fight with the woman who was walking the dogs outside Chatwal's Soho home.
Dream Hotel founder and socialite Vikram Chatwal turned himself in to police this morning to face charges of criminal mischief, animal cruelty, reckless endangerment, and arson for allegedly setting two dogs on fire outside of his SoHo apartment building on Friday afternoon. The dogs reportedly suffered minor burns in the incident. His arraignment was pending Tuesday.
Police had been called by that point, but they didn't arrive until after Chatwal disappeared.
Hollywood Gossip reported a TMZ cameraman caught up with Chatwal after his act of setting the dogs on fire and captured some very odd footage of the hotel founder.
Chatwal is founder of The Dream Hotel Group, which includes the Dream, Time and Unscripted hotels.
