UPDATES Teen Mom 2’s Adam Lind charged with 5 crimes, remains hospitalized

Adam Lind Car Wreck - Mug Shot

Teen Mom 2‘s Adam Lind remains hospitalized with a concussion following his fiery car crash in on Friday afternoon. And, considering the Sioux Falls Police Department just charged him with five crimes, it’s doubtful the father-of-two is in a hurry to leave doctors’ care.

According to TMZ, Adam is charged with reckless driving. By South Dakota law, reckless driving is a more serious offense than careless driving and exhibition driving. It is defined as “heedlessly in disregard of the rights or safety of others, or without due caution and circumspection and at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger or be likely to endanger any person or property.”

Adam was also charged with driving with a revoked license, driving with a suspended license, driving an unlicensed vehicle and not having insurance. All are misdemeanors. But, in light of Adam’s extensive rap sheet, it’s likely he could face more serious punishments.

As we reported last Friday, the charges stem from Adam’s high-speed collision with another vehicle. The Sioux Fall Police Department said in a press release that Adam’s 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 collided with a 2003 Lincoln Towncar, which was occupied by an 87-year-old driver and 94-year-old passenger. Adam’s car then hit a traffic signal pole and fence before bursting into flames. He was removed from the vehicle by witnesses.

Police confirmed today there is no evidence drugs or alcohol played a role.

We spoke with a source close to the situation who told us told us Adam was fortunate to get away with just bumps, bruises and a concussion. The elderly victims were treated for broken bones, but appear to have been released.

This is just the latest and most dramatic incident in Adam’s long list of driving offenses. To date, the 23-year-old has been charged with nearly 50 crimes.

    He must be a really slow learner. My heart goes out to the other two victims!

    • savannah

      Broken bones for people in their senior years can be terrible. Feeling for those victims, and here’s hoping to proper punishment for Adam.

      • Maiko Higa

        It can literally be a death sentence.

        • savannah

          It was for my grandma, she broke her hip and never came home from the hospital. That’s why my heart hurts for these victims. He’s lucky he didn’t kill them on impact.

          • Maiko Higa

            It is very sad. I’m sorry about your grandma. It happened to my neighbor- broke his hip and was gone 5 days later 🙁

  • sotrueithurts711

    One word to describe him… MORON!!!

  • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

    Good job Chelsea! This is who you chose as the father of your child.

    • Sara

      I really don’t see why you’re bringing Chelsea for this. I’m not a fan, but still, she doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that he’s a moron. All I know is that if I was her, I’d never let my child ride with him ever again.

      • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

        Well she was the one that chose to have a child with the moron.

        • P

          chose??? You mean it wasn’t two dumb teenagers having sex without protection?

          • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

            Nope. I don’t believe in mistakes. If your not using protection then don’t surprise if you end up pregnant.

            • MPmom

              You don’t believe in mistakes… do you at least believe in grammatical ones?

              • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

                Ehhh I’m just typing a comment, so I really don’t care about being grammatically correct. It’s not like I will see you guys off here anyways so it doesn’t matter.

          • Nathan

            “chose??? You mean it wasn’t two dumb teenagers having sex without protection?”
            Was she raped? Then, yes, it was a choice. I’m so tired of women having sex with deadbeats and then complaining about how their kids have deadbeat fathers.

    • Geez

      Wow, hostile much?

      • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

        I was actually being sarcastic if you didn’t notice.

        • Geez


    • DM

      Not sure what Chelsea has to do with this exactly…?

    • KAITEY

      If you’re going to rag on Chelsea for Adam fathering her child, you should also mention Taylor. She did the same, only she’s worse because she KNEW he was a deadbeat. If you’re going to criticize, criticize everyone involved who deserves it.

      • Liv

        I completely agree – Taylor is way worse.

  • Anna

    50 crimes….. geez.

  • No_prayers_to_spare

    They should have left him in the car. What a waste of oxygen.

    • sysmj

      And spermatozoa!

    • Leah

      Do you honestly think Aubree and Paislee would be better off without their dad?

      • No_prayers_to_spare


        • WD

          I agree…look at the risk he will probably put them in time after time. He doesn’t have any sense. I don’t trust that he will drive safely with the kids in the car.


    I love how he threatens to take Chelsea to court. Like he’d stand a chance in he’ll. Ahh this idiot makes me laugh.

    • KAITEY

      Loving this auto correct. I meant hell.

      • savannah

        Oh Autocorrect, not wanting you to say bad words… LOL

        • LAbradford

          How is hell a bad word?

  • P

    Aw. Dr. Randy will buy Chelsea a truck load of new purses to ease her pain and suffering through this ordeal.

  • BreeMorey

    Everything about this guy is selfish! I hope Taylor finally wakes up to herself like Chelsea did! Both girls can do better

  • Tabitha

    I wonder if he can even count to fifty… the guy is an idiot.

  • Ss

    And how much do you want to bet Chelsea would STILL take this toolbag back? She has an unhealthy obsession with this guy and why???…. is beyond any human understanding.

    • Haley Thibdeau

      theyre not together at all though….he’s with someone else also with his kid

  • pmo

    wonder if this wiped the smug smirk off his ugly face time for him to be locked up seems to have gotten quite a few passes. father of the year, now that baby can walk talk and use a toilet.

  • DeeDeDee

    They’ll drop the charges and he’ll plead down to lesser charges and ens up with no time in jail. All people deserve… 12 chances. -.-

    Meanwhile, his two daughters almost lost their dad and if they don’t plead him down, then he’ll be spending a bit in jail. At least that other kid (I forgot her name) isn’t old enough to remember visiting daddy in jail. And hopefully Chelsea will do the right thing and keep Aubrey(I feel like that’s not her name either…) away from there.

    • Maiko Higa

      His buddy on the other post said he was on work release at the time of the accident.

    • Cindy Myers

      Aubree is correct. The new baby is Paislee.

  • Brittany

    Hold on, hold on: this a$$hole drove around the way he did with no insurance?! These two elders have to pay for their medical care and for the repair of their car because of $hit that he did. Even if they have a low deductible and medicare, it’s still money out of their pockets, especially if they’re living on a fixed income. I hope they sue him. I’m sure they wouldn’t get much but he just needs someone to really stick it to him, put the nails in the coffin so to speak.

    • witchywoman999

      The couples insurance will cover it and then insurance comp.will sue Adam for the money. They will get a judgment and garnish his teen mom income until the cows come home. He will be paying for 20 plus years.
      He will never own a home and will be paying long after the show is around.

  • christee

    So he can’t blame it on drugs or alcohol, or friends/passengers, since he was alone. This asshat knowingly and intentionally drove recklessly. Throw his butt under the jail, he’s more than proved he can’t learn.

    On the plus side…is it possible this concussion helps reactivate whichever part of his brain should be stopping his stupid ass from doing idiotic, impulsive things? I’m suddenly very thankful he and Jenelle have never become an item. The thought of that much dysfunction and pure stupidity in one relationship is frightening.

    • sysmjp

      Yea, I think Farrah would be a better match for him.

  • A

    despite adam’s rap sheet and this and that, he still deserves to see his daughters. he may not get 50/50, but he should still get to see them. aubree and paislee should have their father in their lives

    • Yup

      Of they should because he’s such a great example. NOT!

    • sysmjp

      Just because you happen to be the sperm donor does not make you a worthy father. Unfortunately, some people are simply unfit to be parents. Adam is looking like one of them.

      • savannah

        I know its just a show, but it really comes across to me that he’s pushing for time with Aubree only to shove his “new family” in her face. They have a really immature relationship based on making the other jealous. I think Chelsea is a great mom and loves her daughter very much, but Adam is just not mature enough to be a good father. (Again, from what we see on the show.)

    • mommy_of_2_girls

      Any boy can be a father but it takes a MAN to be a dad

    • K

      If he keeps doing idiotic crap like this, he won’t be alive TO be in their lives

  • Kailyn’s Frustration

    I could careless about Adumbs condition, I feels so bad for the 90 year olds with broken bones!

  • Tammy

    Winner winner chicken dinner.

  • LAbradford

    What a loser..

    • loren

      I work at mcdonalds im there town he always commin thru drunk with s lot of ppl he a patient alright..what a loser I l kind of live in a house by the accident

  • LAbradford

    What if one of his daughters were in the car with him?

  • King Tyler

    Nice going Mtv. Pay a loser like this to knock up some immature 15 year old, or whatever she was, so he can go get ugly ass tattoos, a p.o.s. 01 Corvette (which he obviously can’t handle) and a case of Old Milwaukee. Somebody should sue your ass for setting this half a retard up for his ongoing crime spree. This dirtbag will get probation and a half hour of community service and be back on the streets smoking crack and running over school children. Maybe you can do a True Life episode on his dumb ass after! Idiots

  • Feisty

    Wow Adam has proven to be such a loser!! He has both parents. Doesn’t his father teach him anything!! He seems like a spoiled brat. Something real bad needs to happen for his parents to wake up. This accident could have killed these people!!

  • Dianna Mize

    he is so selfish. he doesnt care about his daughter or his other child or he wouldnt be acting this was. he doesnt care about the other people that he put in danger because if he had that much of a rap sheet before this im sure he has put alot of others in danger. he also doesnt care about cars either, iv had my mustang for 7 years and havent wreaked it once. it would break my heart of i did. but thats because i actually love my car. shes my baby, and i named her dreamweaver. i would never put my baby at risk like that. if your going to get a sports car like that. the least you could do was take care of it. sad very very sad. selfish jerk!!!

  • How can such as a smart girl get mixed up with such a big a$$ douche bag!

  • Heimrik

    Adam is an epic douche. And he OBVIOUSLY puts on an act… In front of the cameras, he does a piss poor job of pretending he really gives a crap about being a good father. All that shitstain cares about is his own worthless hide. He’s also super vain. Hes so in love with himself its sickening. Showing off with his cars, street racing, his street bike, his silly Affliction T-shirts, and his lame attempt at the “bad boy” look with his tattooed up sleeves… Ugh… The guy seriously suffers from a severe identity crisis due to his epic insecurity issues…
