Miley Cyrus's homeless pal is on the run from police

By AP Reporter

A homeless man who accompanied Miley Cyrus to the MTV Video Music Awards has a warrant out for his arrest in Oregon.

Jesse Helt (22) was arrested in 2010 after he broke into the apartment of a man who had been selling what Helt believed to be bad marijuana.

Helt, who was 18 at the time, pleaded guilty to criminal mischief and criminal trespass, both misdemeanours, and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and probation. The arrest warrant was issued in November 2011 after he violated probation.

He gained worldwide attention on Sunday when Cyrus let him accept her award for video of the year. Helt, who met Cyrus through a Hollywood homeless centre, used the platform to highlight youth homelessness.
