ESPN has sustained another black eye. Radio host Ryen Russillo, who hosts middays 1p-4p ET on ESPN Radio, has been arrested in Jackson, Wyoming and charged with criminal entry.
According to the Jackson Hole News and Guide, police responded to a report at 3:30am of a male being highly intoxicated, naked and refusing to leave a condo which Russillo wasn’t staying at. The two people who were in the condo were asleep at the time when they heard someone come in. They found Russillo laying in a bedroom with his pants around his ankles and after he refused to leave, police were called.
The local police report stated that Russillo had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech and didn’t know where he was. It appears that he thought the condo was where he was staying and there were no signs of forced entry.
Russillo has been with ESPN since 2006. Company officials have told Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News that they are looking into the situation.
