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 think there are some strange people that are Russell worshipers. he is nothing but sick - he's the poster child for Narcissism. A narcissist has a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy. A narcissist is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, and prestige. Narcissistic personality disorder is closely linked to self-centeredness. But in reality these actions are covering up the fact that the narcissist is a loser and tries to be something they aren't.

Russell isn't the greatest all time player, everyone else is too damn naive to vote his *** off! He is riding the whole show on their stupidity.

11. That show is sooooo fake and scripted,you see about 1/10 of the actual video shot"



there's no script at all and actually it's closer to a 300:1 ratio dumbass



"and they make people into what the show wants them to be."



can't make an ******* into a nice guy I've tried. we just accentuate what's there on film.



way to talk out your ass though dr brilliant.

Russell is a creep. Just look at the way he talked about women last time and the way he talks about them this time. It's no surprise he would assault a woman, he has no respect for them. He's the original pig. He plays a good game, I'll admit, but he's still a pig.

I detest Russell. I have to wonder if he would have lasted so long on either survivor if there weren't so many hidden idols. In my opinion, Survivor has overplayed the hidden immunity idol twist. I want to see personal strategy not someone just whipping out another idol to save their hide. I also think Russell should not have been allowed to play back to back. He had the advantage of knowing how the others played previously. No one had that insight into him.



I don't think he will win though. There is nothing to like about Russell, including how he plays.
