Spencer Pratt -- I Was Arrested in Costa Rica

9/12/2010 11:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're not vouching for Spencer Pratt, but his people tell TMZ Spencer was busted at an airport in Costa Rica for illegal possession of a firearm.

As the story goes ... Spencer was on his way out of the country when he was busted for felony possession. We're told he was booked and processed at a local jail and later released after turning over the weapons and signing a confession with the DA.  Yes, we're skeptical, too.

So far, we haven't been able to confirm any of this. But we do have this bizarre statement from Spencer himself:

"As part of my spiritual cleansing I've spent the last week living alone in the jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person. I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive. As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport. It was an honest mistake, and they sent me on my way. On an unrelated note, I'm not allowed in the country anymore -- but that's because of the chicken incident."

Well, we know he can't get arrested in Hollywood ...

Saw this article and had to respond. I live in costa rica and can tell you without a doubt that NOBODY hunts here - the jungles are typically national parks and much of the other land is privately owned and farmland or ranch. It would be like hunting in the new york zoo or a Texas cattle ranch!
PLUS, foreigners are not allowed to own or carry guns - I have no idea who this guy is but he is so full of BS I am astounded. What a kook.

Wonder if he knew where he was, there no ¨jungle¨ in CR where you can actually go in without a tour guide, and if he was in fact killing animals to survive, he´d be in so much trouble with national wildlife protection office ...!
