Survivor is still a hit, and apparently one of Survivor’s current cast landed himself in jail on Thursday night for hitting! More like shoving though. TMZ was the first to break the story on Thursday night, but it developed through Friday.
Russell Hantz was at a street festival in Lafayette, Louisiana on Thursday night, and he shoved someone to the ground. He was immediately arrested by Lafayette Police, and he was charged with simple battery and then later released. This report comes from the local newspaper, The Lafayette Daily Advertiser. They also had Russell’s mug shot, which you can see here.
The other party in this case was a woman as well. The two were seen fighting verbally at the Festival International de Louisiane, and when it went physical that is when the police stepped in apparently. Didn’t his mother teach him never to hit a woman?! He might need a new lesson on manners, but maybe there is no hope for him.
