After his Thursday arrest for allegedly masturbating in public and vandalizing cars, a clip of the Invisible Children co-founder and advocate's meltdown lands online.

If evidence is ever this incriminating, it's rarely this public.

Just hours after news broke of filmmaker and activist Jason Russell's Thursday arrest for allegedly masturbating in public and vandalizing cars, TMZ released a video of what appears to be the Invisible Children co-founder, naked and behaving wildly at a busy intersection.

Backing reports of Russell running through traffic and making lewd gestures in San Diego, the video shows a man in a state of full undress, slamming his hands on the pavement and then raising them up. One off-camera bystander appears to be trying to get the man's attention.

Russell rose to prominence just 10 days ago with the release of the "Stop Kony" video on YouTube, which has since amassed more than 100 million views. The half-hour documentary urges action against Ugandan guerrilla leader Joseph Kony, and it's been received by both detractors and celebrity endorsements.

Invisible Children released a statement about the incident, saying Russell was hospitalized for "exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition," adding that all involved in Kony 2012 have suffered a "severe emotional toll" from the sudden exposure.

TMZ reports that law enforcement have no plans to charge Russell with a crime over the incident.
