TEEN MOM Tyler’s dad Butch Baltierra arrested, in jail again

Tyler Baltierra's dad Butch Baltierra in jail again 2016

In “gut punchingly sad Monday headlines” news, Teen Mom OG (as in Original Grandad) Butch Baltierra has once again found himself behind bars just over a year after serving a lengthy sentence and appearing to have his life back on track. Thankfully, the gut punch is actually more of a gut tap as the charges that landed Butch in jail this time around do not appear to be that serious.

According to online records, Butch (real name Darl Baltierra) was driving his 1989 Chevy pickup a little too fast (16-20 mph too fast to be exact) back in early June, and he was pulled over for speeding. Once pulled over, police discovered that Butch was driving on a suspended license — something he had been caught doing once before.

Making Butch’s situation worse is the fact that he was still on parole and is under supervision until August of next year.

Here is a photo of Butch’s truck (I assume it is the same one) back in May, taken by a neighbor of someone Butch was repairing a fence for:

Butch’s arraignment was on August 25, during which he “stood mute” and a plea of not guilty was entered. On September 7, a jury trial was scheduled for September 15, but on the scheduled trial date, Butch pleaded guilty to the charge as part of a deal. His sentencing was scheduled for October 26, but according to Radar Online, Butch was locked up in St. Clair County Jail from October 7 until October 13.

A rep for St. Clair County Jail tells Radar that they released Butch on October 13, but it is unknown if he is currently out, or if he was transferred to another facility. From Radar Online:

Last Thursday, he was either released of transferred to another correctional institution, the jail rep continued, but according to Baltierra’s Facebook account, it appears that he remains behind bars.

Radar is referencing an interaction in the comments section of a post shared by Butch’s Facebook page on October 15. “How are u sharing sh!t?” a commenter who apparently knew Butch was incarcerated asked bluntly. Butch’s daughter-in-law Catelynn Baltierra explained that it wasn’t actually Butch posting on the page. “It’s Nadine she has his phone,” Catelynn wrote, referring to Butch’s girlfriend.

All in all, this doesn’t sound too bad at all. Given that Butch has to drive for work, I’m surprised he hasn’t been able to attain some sort of work permit. (If Adam Lind can get one, surely ANYBODY can, right?) Either way, he will hopefully be out soon and back to living the good life on the straight and narrow!

        That zebra hoodie needs its own royalties for appearing on tv so much

      • Emmy

        Kiefah actually sold the green hoody to a fan for good money.
        Now there’s an idea Cate. Get rid of that thing and get dressed. Maybe you will feel better.

    This guy can’t keep his shit straight for a year or two? “It’s not that serious” is no excuse.

    Poor Nova. This family is a shit-show.

    • Guest

      I know, right? That kid deserves so much better.

      • Thea

        She deserves her OWN Brandon and Theresa.

      I was thinking the same thing, on parole and making the same mistake twice. He should know better, this could take him away from Tyler again but apparently he doesn’t care.
      This guy needs to learn to obey all laws.
      Get a new drivers license, when they don’t give you one, you are not supposed to be on the road for a reason.
      The feelings of entitlement are strong in this family.

  • savannah

    Ummm that mirror selfie. Ew.

    • TA

      My boss could be Butch’s long lost twin, their faces and hair are identical. Super creepy!

      • Bruja

        That’d be messed up.

        Should take this chest photo of Butch and put it in a frame on your desk.

        See what your boss says.


      • Ambienbrain

        Separated at birth???

  • TA

    I’m guessing part of his parole conditions are that he has a job. And it looks as if he is maybe doing some handyman type of work based on the truck and trailer picture.
    He’s trying. So that’s a plus. He isn’t very employable, considering his record.
    But if he’s going to drive around with a suspended license, he shouldn’t speed!

    • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

      Same thing I said. That drew a lot of attention to himself. If you’re riding dirty you better be on your best behavior on those roads. Butch was feelin himself. On the plus side, Im glad he wasn’t busted for drugs or anything shady.

      • Bruja

        That name wins!

        Oh my lawdie! The picture!!!

        Post more.

        Post all the time.

        I love you.

        • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

          Lol glad everyone likes it. It’s quite popular I see.

      • FrontDoorMom

        Lmao your name!!! Omg her bangs kill me!

  • Me

    Free Butch !!

  • MarvelousBeauty

    Oh Butch, Butch, Butch. You could’ve given those kids and grandkids atleast 5 years. I had faith this time. Poor Tyler and his sister. You could see they had faith too. No matter how little anyone thinks the crime is…the facts are he shouldn’t be breaking the law.

  • Aussie cathie

    Oh dear!!!

  • Mrs C.

    Gross! Dude you are too fkn old and tore up to be taking selfies like that 😝 and when are you going to realize the mullet went out with the ’80’s!

  • Guest

    I don’t get why everyone loves Butch, but hates Adam? They are both deadbeat dads.

    • Emmy

      Right! Uh, when Butch starts to talk and brag like he is all that.
      Before you brag, prove it first you are such a great guy now, get through your parole – failed!
      I thought it was horrible that they even considered uninviting April to a party cause Butch felt he had more rights to be there cause April was the one that send him to jail. Shows he doesn’t get it, no remorse.
      At least Adam never said out loud drugs or driving was more important to him than his kids.
      And we have to thank Adam for ‘Uncle Bad Touch’.
      E for Adam, F for Butch.

    Why is Butch showing his ribs??

  • discoatnine

    How can it be “gut punchingly sad” for a man who has spent half his life in prison to go back to prison. I expect nothing more from Butch.

  • Che

    Well at least it’s not for drugs…
