If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, then these days you’re no doubt familiar with the show’s newest torubled baby daddy, Devoin Austin.
When Briana DeJesus joined the cast for the show’s current season, fans who follow her on social media expressed their hope that Devoin would be featured as well, since he’s something of an entertaining trainwreck.
Thus far, he has not disappointed.
The Ashley’s Reality Roundup is reporting today that Austin was arrested and thrown in jail over the weekend due to an outstanding warrant stemming from a failure to show up in court on marijuana possession charges.
As the site points out, the arrest took place at 5:59 am, which means Davoin was either headed to work, or soming home from the club ready for bed.
Either way, it’s pretty much the worst time to get arrested.
Now, Davoin is being held in Orange County Jail in his native Florida.
He’s awaiting trial not only for the original possession charges but also on charges of failing to respond to a court summons.
No word on bail, but since Devoin didn’t show up to court the first time he was scheduled, it’s probably sky high.
We usually don’t rush to the defense of Teen Mom baby daddies, because the majority of them are terrible, but there’s no denying that Devoin is getting screwed here.
Fans have been quick to drag him on social media, but what did the guy really do that was so terrible.
He got arrested on cannabis possession charges, which is apparently a thing that still happens in 2017.
Sure, failing to show up in court was dumb, but the guy was probably afraid of getting railroaded by the same justice system that had already unfairly targeted him ar least once.
Now the guy is behind bars for having pot and paraphernalia in his possession.
Did we mention it’s 2017?
Now, is Devoin the ideal baby daddy?
Maybe not, but if that were illegal, just about every Teen Mom dad would be doing time.
So if you want to twet about Austin, we say stop dogpiling the poor guy and get a #FreeDevoin hashtag going.
Then you can totally waste the rest of your day with the knowledge that you engaged in some half-assed activism.
It’s a win-win.
