MUG SHOT America’s Next Top Model contestant Renee Alway arrested, doesn’t look in model shape

America's Next Top Model Renee Alway Arrested

Renee Always, the second runner-up during the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model, was recently arrested after she was reportedly mysteriously lurking around a California home with a firearm. Her mugshot has now been released and — boy, oh, boy! — you can bet Tyra Banks wouldn’t approve.

The incident all went down on June 28 when the 27-year-old was spotted creeping around a neighborhood. Police were called in and Alway was discovered hiding in the garage of a resident who was on vacation. She was taken into custody, but police believed another armed man was in the house and proceeded to have a six-hour standoff.

Eventually discovered to be acting alone, Alway was hauled off to the local police station and charged with suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills and committing a felony while on bail.

According to TMZ, Alway was arrested earlier in the same month for possession of drug paraphernalia, petty theft and fraud. She had been released for those crimes, but is now behind bars with a $150,000 bail.

Renee Alway on America's Next Top Model

The former model (pretty sure it’s safe to say her career is behind her), was a front-runner during the 2007 season of America’s Next Top Model. She was cut after shooting her CoverGirl commercial and advertisement because the judges decided she photographed “too old.”

Aside from some occasional appearances shortly after the show, we don’t know much about what Alway has been up to… But it apparently involved getting mixed up in the wrong kinds of activities. Still, for as rough as Alway looks in her mugshot, she’s appears to be in better shape than fellow season No. 8 ANTM alum Jael Strauss.

    I think I remember her from the show… Didn’t she have a son? Where is he? I hope he’s being taken care of by someone if not by her :-/

      That is exactly what I was wondering.

    She is probably a Kate Moss wannabee

    How sad. Maybe jail is the best place for her right now so she can sober up.

  • Bryony

    I loved her on the show – was rooting for her. Where’s her son??
