His probation officer said on Tuesday that the young homeless man who accepted Miley Cyrus’ MTV Music Video Award has a warrant for his arrest in Oregon on a probation violation. Lee Warren, the Polk County probation officer of 22-year-old Jesse Helt, said local authorities were unsuccessful in finding Helt in Salem, Oregon after his mother told the Oregonian newspaper that Cyrus had given him money to fly home. Cyrus, 21, opted not to collect the video of the year award on Sunday for her hit “Wrecking Ball” and instead sent Helt in her place as a way to draw awareness to youth homelessness. Polk County Director of Community Corrections Martin Silbernagel said Helt has had a warrant for his arrest on a probation violation for criminal trespass since Nov. 2011 after he failed to report and comply with probation supervision.
