DALLAS, Ore. (AP) - The homeless man who accompanied Miley Cyrus to the MTV Video Music Awards and who had been sought on an Oregon arrest warrant has turned himself in and posted bail.
The director of Polk County Community Corrections in the Willamette Valley community of Dallas, Oregon, says 22-year-old Jesse Helt turned himself in Thursday, was booked on a probation violation warrant and then posted $2,500 bail.
Corrections Director Martin Silbernagel says Helt will be expected to appear before a judge in about two weeks.
Court records show that Helt pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass several years ago and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and probation. The arrest warrant was issued in November 2011 after he violated probation.
