Spencer Pratt apparently told the truth for once when he said he was arrested yesterday in Costa Rica for felony possession of a firearm. Explosive stuff!
Pratt, who issued a profound apology to wife Heidi Montag last week, was busted for firearm on his way back to the U.S. He was cited and then released.
Spencer claims he was on his way out of the country when he was arrested. He says he turned over the weapons and signed a confession with the local DA.

An arresting document from Costa Rica confirms Pratt was arrested, charged, prosecuted and found guilty. Couldn't have been that bad, as he's a free man.
The name of Heidi Montag is on there, as well, as "spouse." His listed occupation? "Actor." Given the stunts he's pulled, that may not be too big a stretch.
He issued this bizarre statement to TMZ regarding the arrest:"As part of my spiritual cleansing I've spent the last week living alone in the jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person."
"I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive."
"As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport."
"It was an honest mistake, and they sent me on my way. On an unrelated note, I'm not allowed in the country anymore - but that's because of the chicken incident."
No word on what the chicken incident consists of, or whether he actually "lived off the land," or whether any or all of this is even remotely accurate. But it sure is funny.
