Survivor 'Villain' Arrested for Battery

4/23/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Survivor 'Villain' Arrested for BatteryOne of the stars on "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" was arrested in Louisiana early this morning after cops say he attacked somebody at a street festival.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Russell Hantz -- the runner-up from "Survivor: Samoa" -- was partying at the Festival International de Louisiane, when he allegedly "shoved" somebody to the pavement.

Cops say Hantz was immediately arrested by Lafayette City Police -- and taken to a nearby jail.

Hantz was eventually released.

But get this, Hantz is still in contention to win "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" -- which is airing now on CBS ... and yes, he's one of the "villains."

I don't get how stupid the people on Survivor are. Why don't they vote Russel out?, he is obviously running the whole thing, calling all the shots and manipulating everyone, he would be the first person I would get rid of, are they totally stupid or what, why don't they vote his sorry ass out? Didn't they watch it last season? Hello calling all morons!

Russell is a Blue Eyed Devil like myself. We divide and conquer the world by manipulation, false promises, and connivism. Our Blue Eyed Devil ancestors did it to the Africans, Native Americans you name it. This is how I made partner at my firm. It is in our Blue Eyed DNA. Hail Russell!

Russell is the Best Player, He is the Winner in my Book for both 19 and 20, CBS need to get off there ass and let the People make the decesion , not the joke jury, that is the stupidist thing CBS has done its a no win for Russell , of course the tribal councicle is not going to vote for him , he put then there. Its just totaly stupid on CBS to pull that crap. The name of the game is to win youre not playing for a couple of pennys youre playing for 1 million bucks.



RUSSEL WON THAT SIMPLE , Sandra was a joke Boo hoo sandra , Poverty is one of those women that smile at ya cuddle coo you and then when the time is right stabs you in the back.



**************RUSSEL WON THAT SIMPLE ******************** CBS NEEDS TO GET OFF THERE ASS!! AND LET THE PEOPLE THAT WATCH THE SHOW DECIDE I ALMOS T DONE WITH CBS IF THEY KEEP THIS CRAP UP
RUSSELL NNED TO BE IN ANOTHER SHOW AND THIS TIME LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE AND THE JURY DECIDE FOR THE 100,000 NOT THE MILLION THE GAME IS FIXED BY CBS , TH ETRUE WINNER CANT WIN

LOL at #3.... How can he be the best when has not won squat? Parvarti or Sandra are the best players of ALL TIME.



What are the things that speak the best in terms of sports? TITLES, RINGS, TROPHIES! Russell has neither and I would bet if there was a poll held if you liked or disliked Russell he would be disliked by a landslide.



I watch Survivior each season and he by far NOT the best player to ever play. He's a bully and Parvarti USED him to get to the final. Russell made the mistake of taking Sandra with him.



Russell has no social game and that's a big integral part of the game.



Only a self centered little man punk would try and change the way the game is played and has been played for 10 seasons. The jury is part of the game and Russell is just a sore and sorry little man loser.



I wish he would have pushed me to the pavement. He would lose the stained teeth he has now.



He's a punk!



Anybody who says they have not watched Survivor can not comment on who the best was...



The guy is an a**clown and is hated.

Ha Ha Russell didn't even get a vote on the last show of Survivor. Why couldn't the others see what a jerk he really is. So glad he didn't win and hopfully they will never ask him again. He's not worth a 3rd chance at anything other than a hog fight in a tub of mud. Pompous little ass, how can his beautiful wife stand him?

I hate how people say Hantz is one of the best players in Survivor history. He is NOT. Otherwise he would have won. The game shouldn't change for him, he should change for the game. He can get to the end, but he can't get jury votes because he has a HORRIBLE strategy. It's not American Idol, it's Survivor. Just because he apparently entertains some of America doesn't mean he deserves to win. I hope that after this, Survivor producers stop allowing him to be on the show.

Russell Hantz may never win Survivor but that doesn't mean it's the last we'll see him on a CBS reality show this year.
