Ryan Buell granted bail reduction

Former “Paranormal State” star Ryan Buell is currently in jail in Pennsylvania on felony theft charges for allegedly stealing a rental car in State College. The celebrity ghost hunter was in court on October 5 and his $35,000 bail was modified from straight bail to ten percent.

Buell was arraigned in Centre County Court on September 26 and his bond was set at $35,000. He appeared for pretrial on October 5 with his lawyer Jason Dunkle. Dunkle requested bail modification and bond was kept at $35,000 but changed from straight bail to ten percent.

Buell told the judge that if he was granted bail, he would stay with friends or his father in State College. He also offered to relinquish his passport.

Buell allegedly rented a Kia Sportage from Hertz/Eagle Automotive in State College, Pennsylvania on August 1. The car was never returned and when the manager tried to extend the rental as a courtesy, Buell’s credit card was declined for lack of funds. Buell was contacted by the business in an attempt to get him to return the car but he didn’t respond.

Police attempted to contact Buell at the address he provided to the rental company but he no longer lived there. An officer sent Buell messages through Facebook but Buell did not answer but he later posted several messages to his fans on his Facebook wall.

Charges were later filed with the Centre County District Judge Carmine Prestia on September 14. Buell also posted a video of himself on his Twitch account, playing video games with his fans in New York City at a hotel room on September 14.
