An ESPN radio host was arrested early on Wednesday morning after breaking into a condo in Wyoming.

Ryen Russillo was arrested by police at 4am in the town of Jackson.

Police were called at about 3:30 a.m.to the 500 block of Snow King Loop for a report of an intoxicated man refusing to leave.

ESPN, meanwhile, told Deadspin the network was "looking into it".

According to the probable cause affidavit cited by the Jackson Hole News & Guide, officers found Russillo "lying on the bed in the south bedroom naked except for his trousers around his ankles".

"He was too intoxicated to follow through with the request", Schultz said.

Russillo did not force his way into the condo, he entered through an unsecured door, police said. Russillo thought he might be staying at the condo, police said, but didn't know where he was at the time. The Jackson Chief of Police told Sporting News that arrest took place at 3:45 a.m.

Russillo, who hosts "The Russillo Show" and boasts more than 300,000 followers on Twitter, remained in the Teton County Jail on Wednesday afternoon. However, that partnership ended when Kanell fell victim to ESPN's recent round of layoffs. He has previously worked on simulcast radio and television shows with Scott Van Pelt and former Florida State QB Danny Kanell.
