armActor Todd Latourette told KOB 4 that he cut off and cauterized his right arm roughly 17 years ago while he was off his medications. He said he then lied about his injury over a decade later, saying it was incurred on the field of combat, in order to get an acting role, for which he is now apologizing.

“I severed my hand with a Skil saw,” he told the outlet. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.”

Latourette was later cast in roles because of the severed limb and a false story about being a war veteran. Most recently, he appeared in Season 4, Episode 5 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”

Latourette is back on his medication and says that living with the lie has been difficult, which is why he chose to come forward and admit to it now, despite the fact that it will likely hinder his acting career going forward.
