MUG SHOT Jenelle Evans’ boyfriend Nathan Griffith jailed for DUI arrest charges from September

Jenelle Evans' boyfriend Nathan Griffith mugshot photo DUI arrest

Jenelle Evans’ boyfriend Nathan Griffith is currently in jail, reportedly after a court date for his DUI arrest (his third) in September that was featured in last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2.

According to online records, Nathan was booked by the Horry County Sheriff’s Department just before 11AM this morning. His charges and his sentence are not listed online, though it is being reported by several sources that he was sentenced to 60 days behind bars.

If that is correct, then Nathan should be out again prior to Jenelle giving birth to their son Kaiser. Jenelle revealed in January that her due date is June 29.

Above is Nathan’s latest mug shot, which is remarkably similar to his previous one from September. (Though there are some subtle differences.)

It appears as though the couple’s trip to Raleigh last night to see Miley Cyrus was a bit of a last hoorah for Nathan, who must have known that his court appearance today had a good chance of resulting in jail time (which he mentioned on last night’s episode).

We will update as soon as we know more.

UPDATE - The court records are now available and it looks as though Nathan wasn’t jailed today for driving under the influence, but for other charges stemming from his DUI arrest such as resisting arrest, driving with a suspended license and threatening an official in performance duty. The DUI charge appears to still be pending. (There is a “traffic jury trial beginning date” listed as May 5, 2014 — so perhaps Nathan will be trying his luck with the DUI in front of a jury? Do they actually have juried traffic offense cases? Thankfully I’m no expert on these things.)

Here are the charges Nathan did plead guilty to earlier today followed by the sentences for each. (It appears as though the various sentences are concurrent, so Nathan could be out as early as May 9, if not earlier with a suspended sentence. Once again, I am no expert, with all my experience coming from blogging about celebrities with a propensity for legal troubles.)

Driving under suspension, license not suspended for DUI – 2nd offense

      60 days behind bars for your THIRD DUI is a slap on the wrist. Ridiculous!

      • Brittany


        • lili

          this jail time is for charges unrelated to his DUI I. He will be getting a new court date fr the DUI charges

          • Sam

            Thanks for clearing that up lili. Hopefully he’ll get more than 60 days when he goes back to court.

      • sweetmisery21

        Fortunately this wasn’t for the DUI, this was for the other charges and its a total of 47 days behind bars because one charge was dropped.

        • Tamtam

          Is it not a 3 strike state? And people wonder why those exist.

          • TheLaw

            3 strikes exist for felonies, not for misdemeanors.

            • Tamtam

              In Colorado, 3 dui = a felony

    • Brittany

      Well if he got 60 days, we will be hearing about jenells new boyfriend sometime within 30 days!!

      • Jessica

        So true!

      • Brittany’s Shoe

        He’s probably only going to serve half of what he got, if that.

        • ameliaBedelia76

          i hate that part. Why only 1/2 the time? Probably over-crowding but his drunk driving is a menace to society & dangerous

    • Ashley

      Say hi to Courthouse for us, bud!

      • spottedgiraffe

        Lol courtland is actually out right now. Surprising isn’t it

    • Rachel Powell

      Court dockets have been updated. Today’s arrest was for charges related to DUI, not DUI itself–including resisting arrest, driving on the wrong side of the road, and driving without a license. (The DUI charge itself is set to go to trial soon–yes, he wanted a jury trial, idiot.) Anyway, court dockets are updated online now, so you can see how long he actually has in jail. If I’m reading them all right, he should be out 5/9/14 (30 days).

      • sweetmisery21

        47. 30 days for one charge, 15 for another, and 2 days for some other charge.

        • Rachel Powell

          Which one was 47.3? I saw 2 for driving on wrong side of road, 15 for resisting arrest, and 30 for driving without a license.

          • sweetmisery21

            Oh I meant its a total of 47 days behind bars. Whoops!

            • Rachel Powell

              Ohhh I read that wrong, haha. Okay so yes, 47 days total, but I think they run consecutively and therefore he effectively got 30 days.

              • Josie

                Consecutively would equal 45. I think you meant concurrently which would be as long as the longest charge – 30 days.

                • Rachel Powell

                  Herp derp, that’s what I meant, thanks, lol. Clearly I should hop off now! Just wanted to provide an update since the court docket had been updated since this article was posted. :)

                  • sweetmisery21

                    Ahh, ok! Thanks for the clarification!

                    • Renee L

                      Where is everyone finding these records?

                      • Rachel Powell

                        Horry County website :)

                      • Renee L

               I see! Thanks Rachel. Ha, Horry County, funny name.

        He better get, at the very least, a significant amount of jail time. He’s been charged/caught driving under the influence THREE times. And that’s not including the times he most likely did the same thing but didn’t get caught. There is no excuse for endangering other peoples lives.

        • Rachel Powell

          Technically, 4 times. The 4th was on a military base so it gets treated differently.

      • Pat Brown

        60 days

    • Ashley

      HAHA. Finally, some karma.

    • BreeMorey

      This guys head annoys me…….

    • Red

      So, how long until she is back in her husbands arms??

      • Dani

        What if they are both jailed at the same time?

        • Red

          Oh come on now. You know this girl has options!! Kieffer, Gary, I think there was a guy named Josh in there at one point, maybe she’ll surprise everybody and bring Andrew back!!

          • Dani

            Or maybe she will be arrested and she’ll fine herself a new jailhouse hunnie.

    • heyBale

      he looks like a stand in for the first kirate kid movie
      sweep the leg Jenelle.

    • ameliaBedelia76

      so this dude only gets 30 days? Why not even serve this petty 47 days? SO many lives have been changed by drunk drivers & should be taken for seriously than this.
