Man Who Made KONY 2012 Detained For Lewd Conduct
Jason Russell, man who made internet sensation KONY 2012 movie, was arrested in San Diego this morning for public masturbation, vandalizing cars and public intoxication of some unknown substance.
From NBC San Diego ‘”Due to the nature of the detention, he was not arrested,” she said at a press conference. “During the evaluation we learned we probably needed to take him to a medical facility because of statements he was saying.”‘
Because of the situation, the police felt this was more of a medical situation, than a criminal situation, since they didn’t think he had “criminal intent”.
From the CEO of Invisible Children “Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. 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 support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.”
If you aren’t familiar with the KONY 2012 video, it calls for the capture of the Ugandan LRA leader who is complicit in kidnapping and torturing the country’s innocent children.
