A homeless veteran whose makeover video has been viewed 15 million times online was arrested for causing a disturbance at a Burger King in Grand Rapids.

James Allen Wolf was arrested Sunday at the fast-food restaurant and pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges of trespassing and creating a disturbance. A judge ordered Wolf to serve 10 days in jail on each charge.

The time-lapse, videotaped makeover brought international attention to the 54-year-old veteran. Rob Bliss worked with Degage Ministries to bring about Wolf's physical transformation.

The video shows an unkempt Wolf transform into a sharp-dressed, clean-shaven man.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (http://bit.ly/1b9178k ) Wolf began attending Alcoholics Anonymous and took steps toward having his own place to stay after taking part in the shoot earlier this year.
