Jesse Helt, Miley Cyrus’ date to Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, gained attention after the awards show when it became known that there was a warrant for his arrest in Oregon. Helt was wanted for a probation violation. But according to the Associated Press, Helt recently turned himself in at the Polk County Jail in Dallas, Oregon, and then posted $2,500 bail.

Helt’s probation carried over from an old case, where he had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass. The arrest warrant for his probation violation was issued in November 2011.

Helt is reportedly expected to appear in court in about two weeks.
