by at . Comments

Jason Russell, the man behind the now-famous Kony 2012 video, was arrested in San Diego today for masturbating and being drunk in public apparently.

Russell was taken into custody by San Diego cops, according to reports.

In addition to allegedly masturbating, officials say that the Kony 2012 creator vandalized cars. Must have been some kind of epic bender he was on.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

UPDATE: Video has surfaced of Jason Russell in the midst of his naked meltdown in San Diego, pounding his fists in anger and screaming maniacally.

Witnesses say he was running around naked and making sexual gestures.

Jason is under a 5150 psychiatric hold, so authorities can decide if he poses a danger to himself or others. A rep says Russell was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition as a result of a strenuous PR campaign.

"He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better," says the rep. "The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday.

"Jason's passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue."

"We will always love and continue to support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time."

I Have been BOTH exhausted and dehydrated and I hate to tell his wife- but I did not run naked into the streets ranting and raving and doing vulger things! I am pretty sure he was under the influence of drugs and this is something she is gonna have look into. Maybe he is taking something, she just does not know about it. He needs help that's for sure.

This is what happens when a silly clueless white guy goes messing around with something he doesn't understand. That "something" is called African magic. A very powerful spell was cast on him. It's the real deal and is beyond the comprehension of the average dummy who thinks that he can overthrow someone via the internet. African magic is orders of magnitude more potent than any of that Caucasian dilly dally Wicca Witchcraft stuff and as we move into a new Great Year Cycle, it will only get stronger. Word to the wise .... leave the Black Man alone.
