Kony 2012: Co-founder Jason Russell detained after public melt down including masturbating

From melt down to lock down: Jason Russell held on a 5150

UPDATE 18/3/12: 2nd video has emerged from TMZ

More reason not to support these charlatans or their damn video. Jason Russell one of the film makers and executives behind the Invisible Child organization and the Kony 2012 video, appears to have had a total public melt down, on the streets of San Diego on Thursday morning.

TMZ is reporting he was seen acting erratically on the streets:

He was detained by police in San Diego yesterday for allegedly being drunk in public and masturbating.

Jason Russell was taken into custody by San Diego cops.  In addition to allegedly masturbating, cops say he vandalized cars.

Cops told NBC7 in SD they received several calls around 11:30 AM … reporting a man in “various stages of undress.”

Sources tell us … Russell was dancing around the Intersection of Ingraham and Riviera wearing “speedo-like underwear” … and eventually removed the underwear and began to make sexual gestures.

We’re told … it appeared Russell was under the influence of some kind of substance.

A short video captured by a person nearby, shows Russell in full swing and I mean full swing, pounding his fists in anger and manically.

Russell was held on a 5150 psychiatric hold … so authorities can decide if he poses a danger to himself or others.

A rep for Invisible Children says Russell was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition as a result of a strenuous PR campaign.


Despite how I feel about he and his deceptive white saviour cohorts, I felt for the guy watching the video.  Hope he gets the help he needs. Losing your mind is not funny.
