An ESPN host was arrested for allegedly entering the wrong condo while he was drunk, according to reports.

The Hollywood Reporter said Ryen Russillo, host of “The Russillo Show” on ESPN, is accused of forcing his way into a Wyoming condo while he was intoxicated.

He was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespass after officers found him passed out in the condo’s bedroom. Police said he didn’t seem to know where he was when they arrived.

Police said he entered via an unsecured door and wouldn’t leave when residents asked him to leave.

ESPN officials are “looking into it,” the Reporter said.

” Officers found the suspect, later identified as 42-year-old Ryen August Russillo, lying on the bed in the south bedroom. Russillo had blood shot glassy eyes, very slurred speech, and could not answer questions coherently; all signs of alcohol intoxication,” police said, TheWrap reported. “He did not seem to know where he was and could not answer questions as to where he was staying.”

Russillo was placed in police custody and faces a fine of up to $750.

According to the Sports Illustrated, the 42-year-old Russillo, who is originally from West Hartford, Connecticut, has worked for ESPN since 2008. “The Russillo Show” begins at 1 p.m. and runs until 4 p.m., ESPN said.
