An ESPN host was arrested for criminal entry in Wyoming


An ESPN Radio host was arrested early Wednesday in Jackson, Wyoming and charged with criminal trespassing.

Ryen Russillo, the 42-year-old host of ESPN Radio’s “The Ryen Russillo Show,” was booked into the Teton County Jail that morning on the misdemeanor charge.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide on Wednesday reported that Russillo appeared intoxicated and virtually naked in a stranger’s condominium around 3:30 a.m. local time Wednesday.

“Officers found the defendant, later identified as Ryen August Russillo, lying on the bed in the south bedroom naked except for his pants around his ankles,” a probable cause affidavit obtained by the News & Guide said.

A condo resident reportedly told police that he assumed a family member had entered the premises before Russillo walked into the bedroom with his pants down.

“[Russillo] was obviously intoxicated and the only thing he said was that he was getting his stuff,” the records added.

Twitter users on Thursday poked fun at the bizarre incident involving the ESPN Radio personality.

Officers were originally called to the property in the 500 block of Jackson’s Snow King Loop on account of a “highly intoxicated male who was refusing to leave.”

Two people were sleeping in the condo when they heard someone entering the building.

The pair did not recognize the man, and they asked him to leave because he was drunk.

“Occupants pointed the suspect out who was found in a bedroom,” Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said of the incident.

“He couldn’t coherently answer any questions,” he added of Russillo, who lives in West Hartford, Connecticut.

Schultz additionally noted Russillo “appears to have just walked in” and “didn’t force entry” into the condo.

The charge against Russillo carries a maximum fine of $750, and his blood alcohol content was not immediately available.
