As you may know, Miley Cyrus brought a homeless young man named Jesse to the VMAs as her date.
He accepted the VMA award for Video of the Year on Cyrus’ behalf and used the spotlight to raise awareness about the plight of homeless teens.
"Jesse" was identified on Monday as 22 year-old Jesse Andrew Helt, a native of Oregon who has been living in Los Angeles for approximately a year.
Tuesday, authorities told NBC News that Helt is wanted in Oregon on a probation violation.
According to an affidavit obtained by NBC, Helt was first arrested in October 2010 on a drug-related burglary attempt. He told the arresting officer that "he and a friend tried to break into an apartment because the man who rented it had sold them bad marijuana."
Helt pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespass (both misdemeanors). He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, probation and drug treatment.
