A bad news week for ESPN continued when popular radio host Ryen Russillo was arrested for criminal trespassing stemming from a night of alleged drunken behavior.

At about 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police were called to a condo in Jackson, Wyoming, on reports of a "highly intoxicated male who was refusing to leave," according to the Jackson Hole News & Guide .

The man turned out to be Russillo, 42, host of ESPN Radio's nationally syndicated "The Ryen Russillo Show."

According to the newspaper, the man who called 911 said a stranger had walked into his condo and was lying on one of the beds "naked except for his pants around his ankles."

Jackson police reported that Russillo had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and "couldn't coherently answer any questions."

Russillo apparently didn't know where he was and thought he was in his own condo. He was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing.

ESPN has yet to comment on the incident but told Deadspin , "We are looking into it."

The news came a day after ESPN was ripped by pundits nationwide for pulling an announcer from a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee.
