Teen Mom stars’ arrests: see the mugshots of Jenelle Evans, Amber Portwood, David Eason, Ryan Edwards, and more


The thing about growing up in front of the camera — or at least being in the limelight since adolescence — is that fans see everything.

They’ll see achievements and happy moments — but they’ll also see bad things, like conflicts with the law.

Since 16 & Pregnant premiered in 2009, the teen mom cast has had several such roles.

From Jenelle Evans’ multiple drug busts to Amber Portwood’s domestic battery charge, here are all the times the star has been in trouble:

Sadly, Amber has been one of the stars who has had numerous clashes with the authorities and been arrested multiple times.

She was first arrested in December 2010 and charged with two counts of felony domestic battery, one count of felony neglect of family and one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.

The allegations came after MTV filmed a violent fight between her and Gary Shirley, with whom she shares her daughter, Leah.

She pleaded guilty to two counts of household batteries.

In 2011, she was arrested a second time for violating her probation and had to spend Christmas in a cell.

A year later, she failed to complete a court-ordered rehabilitation program and in May 2012 withdrew from her plea deal on felony drug charges.

She was sentenced to two years or more in an Indiana prison.

After being released from prison, Amber returned immediately when he was arrested again in 2019.

This time, in July 2019, she was charged with a felony in Indiana following an altercation with her second child’s father, Andrew Glenn.

Similar to Amber, Jenelle has collected a fair share of her mugshots.

She was arrested in 2010 along with her then-boyfriend, Kieffer Delp, and has since sat in the back seat of a police car 14 times.

Her charges include break-in and drug possession in 2010, cyberstalking in March 2012, heroin possession, possession of paraphernalia and a simple assault on then-husband Courtland Rogers in April 2013 , and driving without a license in February 2015.

Ryan Edwards

Another teen mom actor who has been arrested multiple times is Maci Bookout’s first baby dad Ryan Edwards.

In 2018, he was arrested for violating probation related to previous heroin possession.

He was re-arrested that same year on “prior charges or otherwise,” according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

The Prisoner Information System lists the charge as possession of a controlled substance.

A year later, he was arrested for the third time for theft and possession of heroin.

Along with Jenelle, Kieffer was arrested in 2010 for break-in and drug possession.

But unlike his predecessor, Kiefer failed to escape police pursuit, as he was arrested in 2018 for operating a methamphetamine lab, possessing with intent to deliver, and risking disaster.

He agreed to serve 18 to 36 months in a state correctional facility, suspended for three years.

However, he was arrested on bail in New Jersey in February 2020, just six days after completing his sentence.

Police allegedly picked him up after he visited his hometown of Salem, New Jersey. He was released from prison after being released on bail.

Another of Jenelle’s partners had multiple disputes with the police.

Back in 2020, David was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and verbal threats.

Jenelle claimed at the time that she had left David for good, however, she brought him back after his arrest.

Janelle hired James Spivey and another friend to help her pack things from their shared home after the couple had a fight for a week.

A fight broke out during the visit when David “unlawfully and deliberately attacked James with a Springfield pistol, by hitting [the alleged victim] behind his neck and with a pistol on his back”.

David was released on bail shortly after his arrest.

In 2021, he was arrested again for “driving with a suspended license and corkscrew”.

He is holding bail of $750 and is out on bail.

Jenelle’s first husband, Courtland Rogers, has also been in and out of prison for years.

Back in 2013, he and Jenelle were both arrested for drug possession and assault.

In August 2018, he was arrested on charges of assault, communications threats, and interference with emergency communications.

In January 2020, he was arrested on one count of felony larceny, one count of probation violation and one count of possession of a Schedule I drug.

He also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and Schedule II drugs.
