A man has been charged over video of an Instagram influencer performing a sex act with a dog, which later went viral on Tik Tok.
Tony Vidler, 41, was arrested at his home in Argents Hill, on the NSW mid north coast, last month and charged with bestiality and distributing an intimate image without consent.
Vidler told Daily Mail Australia he denied the allegations levelled at him and would be defending himself in court.
It is understood the fishing charter operator met the teen on a Sugar Daddy website and police will allege during conversations he gained access to an intimate video of her.
The teen - who has 23,000 Instagram fans - claimed he threatened to send the video to her boyfriend and family, unless she sent him another one, this time with the animal.
After doing so the teen soon found the video circulating on social media, leading her to defend herself and plead her innocence on her Tik Tok and Facebook pages.
'First of all I am sorry to anyone who has seen the video and I'm sorry to anyone who knows me. Second of all I never did that for pleasure and I didn't do it for money,' the teen said.
'There is actually a bigger story behind it but I'm not going to sit on Tik Tok and share my story.
'It's an investigation with the police (and) although what I did was disgusting and wrong, I'm not getting in trouble for it and my dog won't be getting taken off me.
'I am trying to move on with my life and I hope that made sense.'
In the days after the apology the teen posted another video in which she referred to a 'bigger story' at play, she posted another video in which she claimed she had been blackmailed by someone.
She told those watching her Tik Tok live video that the man had access to another video of her which he had threatened to share with her relatives.
'He was saying that if I don't make the video he would send the other video to my boyfriend and to my Nan, and put it on a DVD in my Nan's letterbox,' she claimed.
The teen claimed she had been 'sent money' by the money for the initial video and 'did not think to go to the police' because of fears she may be complicit in fraud.
'I just thought that I would do it and that no one else would find out about it... and if I just made the video that it would just go away,' she said.
'If people are going to continue messaging on my stuff feel free to message me and I will call and talk about the full story.'
NSW Police raided Vilder's home in the early hours of Wednesday, June 24 and inside allegedly found cannabis, a mobile phone, a laptop, an SD card and a USB stick.
That afternoon they returned to the home and arrested him.
'A man has been charged after a video containing bestiality was shared on numerous social media platforms earlier this month,' NSW Police said in a statement.
'About 12.30pm on Thursday 4 June 2020, officers attached to Tuggerah Lakes Police District, with the assistance of Mid North Coast Police District, commenced an investigation after they were alerted to a video that depicted sexual acts between a woman and a dog.
'At 3.30pm the same day, a 41-year-old man was arrested at the Argents Road address and taken to Macksville Police Station where he was charged with possess prohibited drug, bestiality and intentionally distribute intimate image without consent.'
In a statement, the NSW RSPCA said they could not comment as the matter remains before the courts.
Vidler was granted conditional bail to appear in Macksville Local Court on Thursday 6 August 2020.
