Spencer Pratt was arrested for felony firearms possession in Costa Rica

41150, MALIBU, CALIFORNIA - Wednesday June 2, 2010. Spencer Pratt, channeling his inner mountain man, deals with the split from wife Heidi Montag by going for a solo run on the trails in Malibu.

Could it be that Spencer Pratt has finally, at long, long last, lost his f-cking mind? Perhaps. Spencer was arrested in Costa Rica on Saturday for “illegal possession of a firearm.” Apparently, he needed the gun because he was spending a week “living off the land” and “hunting” in Costa Rica. He was briefly jailed and then released, and he claims that he’s not allowed in the country anymore. Eh. It is my dream that someday Spencer is not allowed in America again.

Could Spencer Pratt be headed to the slammer? The former MTV reality star was arrested in Costa Rica Saturday for illegal possession of a firearm on his way back to the U.S., according to TMZ.com. The site reports Pratt, 27, was booked at a local jail and then released.

“Costa Rican jail smells like children’s tears. And soup. Delicious soup,” Pratt Twittered after news broke Saturday afternoon. “If I knew the gov’t was Team Jacob, I would’ve kept my mouth shut.”

The reality star — who spent time in the Central American country with his ex, Heidi Montag, in 2009 as part of NBC’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here — offered a bizarre statement to TMZ with additional details surrounding his arrest.

“As part of my spiritual cleansing I’ve spent the last week living alone in the jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person. I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive,” Pratt is quoted as saying.

“As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport. It was an honest mistake, and they sent me on my way,” he adds. “On an unrelated note, I’m not allowed in the country anymore — but that’s because of the chicken incident.”

Pratt’s arrest comes on the heels of a public apology made to wife Montag, who recently filed for divorce after a year of marriage.

In an email to the Associated Press, Pratt says his behavior in the wake of their alleged breakup — including his threat to release a sex tape — was “outrageous and infantile.”

Yes, so my hopes that he would be thrown in jail for several years have been dashed. Was this a cry for help? A cry for attention? Or has Spencer truly gone crazy? I vote for a little of column A, B and C. I think Spencer’s mental health is… not good. Add to that his incessant need for attention and his need to live every aspect of his life in the public eye… oh God. Why do I bother trying to analyze this crap? I wish I could just stamp his forehead with some unwashable ink reading “FAMEWHORE DOUCHE” so everyone would be forced to photograph him that way.

UPDATE: Apparently, Spencer and Heidi were seen together in LA over the weekend too. CB says Spencer was just trying to get attention by bringing firearms to the airport. Sigh.

42544, HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - Tuesday July 13, 2010. Spencer Pratt sports a thick beard and curly mustache as he arrives at the Roosevelt hotel wearing a black tuxedo and carrying a hiking back pack. Later in the day, Spencer emerged dressed in a costume, complete with wig, wrinkly makeup, fake belly and a green sack slung over his shoulder, and made his way down famous Hollywood Boulevard. There he met up with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and they could be seen taking photos together as well as strolling the Boulevard. Perez, who looked as if he didn't quite believe it was Spencer, acted like a good sport.

    isnt heidi in costa rica? maybe he was hunting dolls. i honestly now think this guy is in need of intervention and/or maybe some meds or a stay somewhere. he needs tobe broken down and rebuilt.

  2. DetRiotgirl says:

    Lol! What are those pictures from???

  3. Rita says:

    Setup pub stunt. Nuff said.

  4. texasmom says:

    Does he remind anyone else of Puck from the long-ago Real World San Francisco? A combination of authentic crazy and intentional attention-hogging.

  5. geenie says:

    He cracks me up with his stupidity.

  6. Kelley says:

    Spencer Pratt lost his mind a long time ago, if he ever had one … it’s just that nobody has told him yet. Take it out back and shoot it.

  7. jen says:

    Yes texasmom-Puck did it first!

  8. Kelly says:

    So, so strange – I used to think he was just a useless famewhore, hamming it up for the cameras. But now I truly believe he is mentally ill. All that stuff about isolating Heidi in their Compound of Crazy, the armed guards… Even the crystals. I’m not a mental health professional but I’ve read quite a lot about mental disorders – sounds like delusional paranoid disorder to me.

  9. Persistent Cat says:

    If pretending to be crazy didn’t work for Joaquin Phoenix, it’s not going to work for Spencer Pratt.

  10. Idlewild says:

    Why do these utter wastes of DNA get any press coverage at all? Please, a total moratorium on them!

  11. No Sensei says:

    “As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport.”

    You can’t make this up…

  12. SammyHammy says:

    I actually am starting to think he has a genuine mental illness. He’s so easy to laugh at with his ridiculous, attention getting stunts…but I am thinking that he can’t help himself.

    As a person with issues of my own, I really think he would benefit from some talk therapy and medication. He might still be a useless tool, but at least he would not be dangerous anymore (hopefully).

  13. mamalama says:

    Children’s tears and (delicious) soup?! WTF?!?!

  14. a says:

    they released him already? damn.

  15. irishserra says:

    Good Gawd, he looks so old!!

  16. gloaming says:

    That statement he made was comedy gold!

  17. crystal says:

    um can i get more details on the chicken incident he spoke of?!

  18. Anna says:

    I understood nothing of what he said. Children’s tears & soup? Team Jacob? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!

  19. Lisa says:

    Um… Really?? Children’s tears and chicken soup…. The man’s a famewhore nutball…

  20. TaylorB says:

    From what I understand most jails smell like sweaty feet and BO, makes me wonder what the hell kind of soup has he been eating.

  21. TaylorB says:

    That may be one of lifes little mysteries best left unsolved.

  22. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Since when did being arrested sudden;y become the thing to do to get media attention???!!

    Whether he’s really lost his mind or not, treating a criminal offence as a media ploy is didgusting and I pity what is happening to the world if this continues

  23. Kiska says:

    Kaiser, you can’t lose something you’ve never had. Spencer never has had a mind.
    He is completely fruit loops, bat-s*%T crazy. It is only a matter of time before he turns the gun on Heidi and himself.

    santa, why are you stealing our christmas tree?

  26. freckles says:

    “If I knew their government was Team Jacob, I would have kept my mouth shut”

    LMFAO wtf?? I am loving those tweets and his statement. It doesn’t get better than that.

  27. Jill says:

    Please, please, please don’t post about famewhores. Please?

  28. Eleonor says:

    Spencer always scares me.

  29. BeeCee says:

    @DetRiotgirl: I believe the bottem 2 pictures are from the MTV series finale party and Spencer wasn’t allowed in so he dressed up like a mad man

  30. california angel says:

    haha lmfao the comments on here are hilarious!

  31. GatsbyGal says:

    I wish he had been jailed in some dank Mexican prison and never heard from again.

  32. gg says:

    He is strung out on drugs! wtf has he got under his shirt?

  33. CB Rawks says:

    It’s only column B.

  34. CB Rawks says:

    “That statement he made was comedy gold!”

    No, because he worked really really hard on it and thinks it is really really clever. Therefore it is a desperado wannabe tries-too-hard Epic FAIL.

  35. Liana says:

    Please, please, please don’t post about famewhores. Please?

    Then there would be little to no posts here.

  36. R. Lono says:

    Spencer is seriously ill. I do think he needs help. Perhaps he was going to use the fire arm to kill his wife. I wouldn’t put that pass him. Get him some help before he loses touch with reality really badly and kill someone.
