(ABC) — Jesse Helt, the homeless man who accompanied Miley Cyrus to the MTV Video Music Awards, turned himself into authorities in Oregon and posted bail after being sought on an arrest warrant for a probation violation.

Helt was originally arrested in 2010 for “criminal mischief,” among other charges. He pleaded guilty/no contest to the charges and received probation, which he violated the following year, authorities said.

The arrest comes four days after Helt entered the public spotlight. He took the stage at Sunday’s awards show after Cyrus won the video of the year award for “Wrecking Ball.”

Helt and Cyrus had met through My Friend’s Place, an organization that helps homeless youth find shelter, healthcare and education.
