Spencer Pratt Was Right, He Was Arrested

9/12/2010 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Every now and again, Spencer Pratt does actually tell the truth -- turns out he really was arrested in Costa Rica yesterday.

As we told you earlier, Pratt told us he was busted in Costa Rica for felony possession of a firearm on his way back to the U.S. yesterday. He was cited and released.

Now, we've gotten our look at an arresting document from Costa Rica -- and even though it's in Spanish, it does have his name on it and includes fun words like "guilty," "charged" and "prosecution" (thank you, Google Translate). 

Heidi's name is in there too, listed as his spouse -- and his occupation is listed as "actor."

That word must mean something different in Costa Rica.

What a loser! Of course he is fame whore. If he called TMZ to tell Harvey about the "arrest", he clearly wants /wanted attention. No one would disagree.
No one has spoken about those BOTTOM DWELLERS since the nonexistent sex tape (which is about a week or 2). Not long enough.
1st of all the s*** had to have purchased the firearm in Costa Rica, because he would have never made out of the U.S. with a gun in his luggage.
2nd, I have heard a true story regarding "forgetting about the gun". This happened over 20 years ago. Mom's friends went to Washington D.C. from L.A. via an airplane. The wife was totally paranoid (she had issues). She did have a permit to care a concealed weapon. They went & visited all of the monuments, etc. Then when they were walking up the huge stairs to go into the senate or congress (something big) her husband thought to ask her about her gun she kept in her purse. She had it & didn't realize it. Now here is the BIG BUT. She really only forgot because she carried it with her ALL THE TIME. In the end they went back to their hotel.
Obviously this idiot did not do this on accident. I really hope homeland security doesn't put him on a No Fly list, cuz then we will never get them out of the U.S.

Too bad he didn't get caught with the gun at LAX. Now that would have been fun. Shove his grossness into a Federal prison would have served him right. I bet he made sure of the laws in Costa Rica before deciding to put the gun probably on top of his clothes in this bag so it would be found.

@8 - mighty mad, if you watch TMZ on T.V., you would know that there are quite a few people who speak Spanish fluently. They were probably just messing around. Why so serious? You always are.

I still think this was a ploy to get attention and be the center of attention...again! My theory; he planted the firearm, took it to the airport, wanted to get caught so they couldn't go back to Costa Rica. Unable to go back, is his way to not have to move there after they said they were and also to make top story of TMZ. Lame!

No one "forgets" about the weapons in his backpack. He kept them in there on purpose because he wanted to get busted for attention. Nobody in Costa Rica cared so he had to disseminate the story himself. That's the funniest part. I wonder if he has the cajones to "forget" to take the knife out of his backpack before trying to board a plane in THIS country:)

Barf, gag, Can't help it when you report on this nut.

Let's all face it. There is no divorce, it's a stunt and we all know it.

Heidi will never be free from this guy. She is his cult and his prisoner for the rest of her life.

Can we all move along please.
