Porn star santeria priest busted with van of goats, roosters, pigeons and a duck

And now for a break from politics for the naked side of life: The strange case of Raul Armenteros who, as our erstwhile colleague and news partner described as someone "who should be a Carl Hiaasen character."

Consider:

"Arrested last week on 22 counts of animal cruelty, the 46-year-old Armenteros was taken into custody after police discovered nearly two dozen animals – four goats, eight roosters, four hens, four pigeons and a duck – in a van baking in the mid day Miami sun.

As Miami police officer Andres Dominguez waited for animal control to arrive, Armenteros and another man, James Arroyo, walked up and said the animals belonged to them.

And why did the men have small petting zoo in their van?

“They said they were going to do an offering,” Dominguez told CBS4’s Jim DeFede.

The men admitted to being Santeros, practitioners of Santeria, where animal sacrifices are a part of their religious beliefs.

But that still is not the strangest part of the story.

Turns out Armenteros is also Miami biggest – and we mean biggest – porn star. Known by the stage name “Ramon” and “The Monster,” Armenteros has spent most of the last decade making adult films in South Florida for the region’s bevy of internet porn sites, including the “World Famous Bang Bros.”

The rest of the story and a video is here. Sorry, folks, it's not the kind of video that "The Monster" is known for. You'll have to google that on your lonesome.
