March 16, 2012 by staff
Invisible Children Co-founder Arrested, Jason Russell of Invisible Children speaks at TEDxSanDiego in December 2011. Over the past couple of weeks, Invisible Children has been in the news quite a bit. First because a video produced by the organization acheived viral success and shone a spotlight on the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.
Then, because the video caused controversy when some said it glossed over a complex issue. Today, the co-founder of the group, Jason Russell, is making news again. This time because he was arrested by the San Diego Police Department.
NBC San Diego reports:
“Jason Russell, 33, was allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to Lt. Andra Brown. He was detained at the intersection of Ingraham Street and Riviera Road.
“Brown said Russell was acting very strange. “‘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.’”
