One of the co-founders of Invisible Children, the San Diego-based charity which is campaigning for the arrest of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, has been hospitalised after police said he was detained for being naked and masturbating in public.
Jason Russell, 33, was picked up by police in San Diego at around 11.30am on Thursday after receiving numerous calls from the public about a man vandalising cars, being apparently under the influence of a substance and making sexual gestures while wearing only his underwear. Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalised suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition. (sleep and food deprivation)
In a statement, Danica Russell said, “Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things.”
TMZ: Russell can be heard ranting to himself, dropping F-bombs, clapping to no one in particular, and shouting about the devil.
