Russell, 33, the co-founder of the San Diego-based advocacy group Invisible Children, was detained on San Diego’s Pacific Beach after police responded to reports from several callers that a man “was running through the street in his underwear,…interfering with traffic, banging his hands on the sidewalk,” and behaving irrationally, a San Diego Police Department spokeswoman said.
