Find out the scoop of Survivor Russell Hantz's arrest on April 23rd!

Turns out that Survivor Russell Hantz (Seasons 19 "Samoa" and Season 20 "Heroes vs. Villains") is living up to the "Villain" title!  He was allegedly arrested on April 23rd around
2 a.m. in Lafayette, Louisiana at the Festival International de Louisiane for committing assault to some dude while out partying.   Supposedly he shoved someone to the ground...  With the offense level, no bail was required for his release, but received a misdemeanor summons to appear back in court on June 24th.  (Joining the only other Survivor I know of ever in trouble with the law, Richard Hatch for tax evasion)

Just to clarify for all you Survivor fans, Season 20 was recorded last fall and the Finale is on May 16th.  So, Russell's arrest won't affect this season to my knowledge.

I find this arrest to be quite hilarious!  For him to be a "Villain" and pull this kind of stunt now that he is a public figure, it fits him way to well.  Not to mention the perception the public has of him already after being on Survivor.  I do believe that he is one of the best players of the Survivor game but come on now!

Let me know what you think of Russell's arrest!
