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."

They said he was busted in Louisiana and that he was still in contention to win which I took it that the show is over and he could still win.Which means he is in the finals..

Speak the word - His is still in contention. We all know that- everyone that is left in the game is still in contention.

You said TMZ told us he made to the finals- Read the post.

He did make it to the final in Samoa.

You stupid Fu**. Go to school

It was only some time before this little troll whacked someone. He is no respector of other people and frankly, I expected him to blow long before this.

He IS, however, an extremely talented strategist. His ego is getting the best of him and he will lose. Sandra and Parvati are much better players than he. The past two weeks have proven that.

I also think that Russell looks like Charles Manson. Could he really be his son? He's about the right age.

He's an idiot. I can't believe the current people playing the game with him can't see he is a con man, a liar, & an idiot. They must be bigger idiots.
I hope this jackoff goes away when the survivor series ends.

Speaktheword, you are CLEARLY confused, everyone is trying to help you understand. Instead of listening you're too busy insulting people. You are making a fool of yourself, so maybe you should stop posting comments!

Russell was a finalist LAST SEASON, Survivor Samoa. He is on the Villians tribe THIS SEASON and is still in the game. Anyone who watch last season and watched last night's episode KNOWS THIS ALREADY!!!

I am so sick of Russell.... I can't believe CBS put this creep on back to back seasons... What were they thinking? I used to enjoy watching Survivor and I am so burned out with seeing his little evil troll body on this show. You can be good at this game without being so evil. I really hope he gets sent home. If they ever put him on another season of Survivor I will not watch it. I've had enough of Russell Hantz ruining my Thursday night show.

Rupert was stupid last night for not approaching Sondra to flip - looks like it may happen next week. She came to him with the goods on Russell, why didn't he bring her over to the heroes??
No bigger idiot in the game than JT - he cut his own throat by trusting Russell. And giving him an idol?? Pure stupidity.
Although I don't like Russell and want him out of the game, you gotta admit he is one good player!! The one I really can't stand is Parvati.
OK, we get it - SpeakTheWord was mistaken - let it go.
