Jason Russell, the filmmaker behind the mega-viral "Kony 2012" documentary, was arrested in San Diego on Thursday night, NBC reported, citing the San Diego Police Department.

Russell, 33, "was taken into custody after he was found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something," NBC's San Diego affiliate reported, citing San Diego Police Department spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown.

The San Diego Police Department's Brown did not immediately return two messages left Friday from Yahoo News.

I saw this last week. People from his production group are saying that it had nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. I'm skeptical but it's possible. I get that being that in the public eye can be extremely stressful, but that was the point of the video, right? Hopefully he gets the help that he needs for whatever is troubling him.
