Helt turned himself in to poice on Thursday and was released on $2,500 bail. His mother has confirmed that Cyrus offered to pay all legal costs associated with the incident.
His friend Trevor Neilson told the Associated Press: "Jesse Helt turned himself in.. to Polk County authorities to address his outstanding legal issues... Miley Cyrus will be assisting him with this process, and they both are committed to working to help the other 1.6 million youth who experience homelessness in America each year."
