New Close-up Footage of "Kony 2012" Filmmaker's Breakdown
A new video of "Kony 2012" filmmaker Jason Russell shows an up-close-and-personal view of his meltdown on the streets of San Diego.
Russell was detained this week after there were reports of him acting bizarrely and masturbating in public. A video from afar showed him banging on the cement and yelling, but in this up-close video from TMZ Russell curses incoherently, screams at the devil and claps his hands.
