The former Hills star was reportedly apprehended at an airport as he prepared to travel back to Los Angeles.

"As part of my spiritual cleansing I've spent the last week living alone in the jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person," he told TMZ. "I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive. As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport. It was an honest mistake, and they sent me on my way. On an unrelated note, I'm not allowed in the country anymore — but that's because of the chicken incident."

Pratt later made light of his arrest in a series of messages posted on Twitter.

"Arrested in Costa Rica. If I knew the gov't was Team Jacob, I wouldve kept my mouth shut," he joked in reference to the Twilight films.

Hours later, Pratt added, "Thanks to jail, I finally have something in common with Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and that Lohan chick!"
