I know Russell is a bully on Survivor. I know he's scheming and manipulating and sneaky. I know most people hate him. I'm not one of those people. Unless the story I read on E! Online is true.
Russell Hantz was allegedly arrested in Lafayette Louisiana for battery. Against a woman.
According to a spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, Hantz, 37, was partying at a local nightclub during the street festival when he allegedly got into an altercation with an unidentified woman, then shoved her to the ground.
Melanie Hantz: (on facebook) Of course but I know what really happened, he didn't hit anyone police heard that by word of mouth. The person they say he supposedly hit said she don't know what the **** that came from cause he didn't do anything. There are witnesses. He didnt' even go to jail,they took him to the station and them let him go.
According to Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, officers were working downtown when they were flagged down in the 500 block of Jefferson Street about a disturbance between a man and a woman.I'm torn between believing the story and thinking that maybe the 18 year old made it up thinking she could get something out of it. I can't wait to see what the outcome is and what the truth is in reality. REAL reality...not reality TV.
The 18-year-old woman and a witness told officers that the woman was in a verbal argument with Hantz, during which he allegedly pushed her to the ground. The woman suffered minor injuries, Mouton said.Hantz was arrested a short time later and was cooperative with police, Mouton said. He has since been released from the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
