ESPN Radio talk-show host Ryen Russillo, who used to appear regularly on Comcast Sportsnet New England shows, was arrested and charged with “criminal entry” in Jackson, Wyo., according to the Teton County Sheriff’s Office.
Russillo was arrested for the misdemeanor at approximately 3:45 a.m. Wednesday. The Teton County Sheriff’s Office did not release any additional information. A mug shot of the 42-year-old Russillo was posted on the sheriff’s office website.
Earlier this week, Russillo tweeted this:

The host of “The Ryen Russillo Show” also tweeted about the Isaiah Thomas/Kyrie Irving trade in the hours after it was announced Wednesday. (Sounds like he thinks it’s good for the Celtics.)
1/ Love the trade for Boston. Kyrie has his flaws but that kind of scoring ability is the most important thing in the playoffs.— Russillo (@ryenarussillo) August 23, 2017
Russillo is perhaps best known around these parts for being the guy on the receiving end of an angry voice mail from former WEEI morning host John Dennis. The epic two-minute rant can be heard here.
ESPN has said only that it’s “looking into” the incident in Wyoming.
