Remember the exceptionally handsome homeless dude who accepted Miley's VMA award? Yep, he's in jail now.

If that wasn't bad press enough for Cyrus, it's also indirectly her fault for allowing him to leap into the spotlight.

You see, in 2010, Helt pleaded guilty to charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief after he confessed to breaking into a drug dealers apartment because he sold him "bad marijuana." The next year he ran away chasing fame in Los Angeles (good job with that by the way, Jesse!) and, as a result, skipped out on the rest of his community service.

This probation violation reportedly went unnoticed by Oregon authorities until Jesse popped up at the Video Music Awards and gave his speech about "the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now."

After being caught thanks to his high profile foray into the very world of fame he desired, Jesse Helt will now be spending six months in the slammer.

Let's hope Miley goes to visit him. I'm sure it would make some great Instagram photos!


Is it time for Miley to undertake a little jail adventure?
