As expected, we are quickly learning more about Miley Cyrus's homeless VMA date, Jesse Helt, with the news breaking today that there is a warrant out for his arrest in the state of Oregon. According to the AP, Helt was arrested on charges of criminal mischief, criminal trespass, and burglary back in 2010, when he was 18, after breaking into the apartment of a man who he believed to have sold him bad marijuana. The arrest warrant was issued after he violated his probation in November 2011. A sheriff from Polk County, Oregon, said that he visited the home of Helt's mother in Salem on Tuesday and is looking for him, while his mother told reporters on Monday that Cyrus had given Helt some money to fly home for a visit soon.
