- Polk County Jail
- Jesse Helt's Mugshot
Helt, the homeless 22-year-old aspiring model from Salem who accepted Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Award on Sunday night, surrendered to Polk County Police yesterday and was later released on bail. After Helt's appearance at the VMAs, it was reported that he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest because he broke the terms his parole, stemming from his arrest following an incident in which he broke into a weed dealer's apartment after the dealer sold him some bad weed.
The Oregonian reports that Cyrus gave Helt some money to fly home and visit his mother. Upon his arrival back in Oregon, Helt turned himself in and was released on a $2,500 bail. He'll appear in Polk County Circuit Court on September 16.
Now let us never speak of this again.
