This Teen Mom star was arrested for a DUI last week, but now he’s claiming he isn’t guilty of the charges! He claims he wasn’t in the car when the arrest happened, and that it is all fake. This star has had his fair share of issues with the law…so should we believe him?
Keep reading to find out everything he said about the arrest!
The Teen Mom star has had his fair share of legal troubles in the past, and a DUI is never a great look. Back in 2016, he was he was arrested for domestic violence against his ex, Jessica Henry. He was arrested again in February 2018 for hitting fixtures while driving on a highway. His girlfriend told Radar Online , “Nathan ran out to get an energy drink alone. He was arrested for pulling away from a gas pump with the pump still in his truck’s tank. It was an accident.”
A motion was filed to reopen the case on June 1, 2018. A clerk told Radar that prosecutors sought to work out a deal before it goes to trial. A pre-trial conference was not scheduled until January of this year.
This time around, Radar Online and TMZ reported Nathan was arrested on the evening of Thursday, October 17 in Cary, North Carolina. He was arrested outside a grocery store for “driving while impaired.”
He posted a $10,000 bond, and has already been released. His court date is set for next month.
Nathan currently lives in South Carolina, so there is no explanation as to why he was arrested in North Carolina.
But now, in an exclusive video he sent to TMZ, Nathan claims his arrest was unjustified.
He claims he was not driving his vehicle when he was stopped by the police. He told the outlet that his keys were locked inside of his car, and he was walking to meet his friends when they found him.
Nathan said he was about 5 minutes away from his car, and the cops had to escort him back to his vehicle. That’s where they decided to do a field sobriety test and arrest him for driving under the influence.
Overall, he claims he should at the least be charged with public intoxication.
