Reality Stars Who Have Been Arrested

Jon Dalton became a villainous “Survivor” legend when he competed in the show’s Pearl Island season in 2003. Jonny Fairplay, as he’d dubbed himself, feigned grief when he supposedly learned that his grandmother had died in the midst of filming — even though she hadn’t, and the whole thing had been a lie. 

More than a decade later, in December 2020 Dalton and his mother surrendered to authorities when they learned there was an arrest warrant out for them — because they’d allegedly ripped off that very same not-deceased grandmother. As the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia told WSLS News, Dalton and his mom, Patsy Hall, allegedly stole a bunch of stuff from the home of his grandmother, Jean Cook, with their haul including some barstools, an end table, and a chair, along with a silver necklace reportedly worth $5,000. Dalton professed his innocence: “I (we) have been unjustly charged by a family member. I welcome the opportunity to vindicate myself (and my mother),” he told the Associated Press following his arrest.

A few months later, the larceny charges against Dalton and his mother had been dismissed. “These warrants were issued based on the statements of a disgruntled family member,” Dalton told Entertainment Weekly, stating that a police investigation of those claims was never undertaken, and the charges had been dropped due to insufficient evidence. “We are disappointed that this ever was allowed to happen and relieved that it is over,” he said, adding, “Love to Jean Cook … aka dead grandma.”
