According to NBC, Jesse was booked four years ago on a drug-related burglary attempt and is wanted in Oregon on a probation violation. Miley's pal was arrested in October 2010 after he broke into someone's apartment.
Jesse pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. He spent at least three weeks in jail and was sentenced to probation and drug treatment. Since then, he violated his probation two times. He currently faces arrest if caught.
A Polk County sheriff's detective visited Jesse's mother's home in Salem on Tuesday, but did not find him there. He is supposedly on his way to her house as we speak.
Miley spoke out about the legal drama surrounding her homeless buddy Jesse on Twitter. "People who are homeless have lived very hard lives. Jesse included," she posted.
"I hope that this can be the start of a national conversation about youth homelessness and how to end it. Does looking down upon the homeless help people excuse their inaction? The media never fails to disappoint. You've chosen to go after Jesse instead of covering the issue of youth homelessness :(."
