Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra marijuana arrest details uncovered

Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra arrested for marijuana in 2009

On this season of Teen Mom OG viewers have seen Catelynn Lowell’s struggle to quit marijuana, a drug that she and husband Tyler Baltierra have openly admitted to using often — actually, very often. As we first reported back in 2013, both Tyler and Catelynn have used pot since at least 2009 when they were both arrested for marijuana possession just one week after Catelynn gave birth to their daughter Carly.

At the time of our initial report, not much mush known about the details of the arrest, merely that they pleaded guilty and each had to pay $253 in fines and court fees. Now, thanks to Radar Online publishing the original police report from the incident earlier today, we have more information about what happened.

In addition to Tyler and Catelynn, the police report indicates that two other unidentified juveniles were also arrested. Here is the arresting officer’s account of what happened with some information redacted, including summaries of the interviews he conducted with each of the four juveniles present. You will notice that one female says she gave birth just two weeks prior. It is assumed that female is Catelynn, although she actually gave birth to her daughter Carly exactly one week prior on May 17.

On May 24, 2009 at approximately 2030 hours, I Officer Mohr and Officer Clark were dispatched to the area of Washington St. and Market St. for juveniles smoking VCSA. I arrived on scene and observed four juveniles standing behind the old ATT building. I arrived on scene and observed one of the male subjects throw something on the ground. The subjects then began to walk away. I approached the subjects and asked for identification. The subjects were identified as [redacted].

The subjects were asked individually what they were doing. All four subjects advised that they were smoking marijuana. All four subjects were turned over to their parents.

EVIDENCE: Found next to the ATT building where all the kids were at the time of arrival was what appeared to be a marijuana blunt. The blunt was brought back to the Marine City Police Department and tested positive for marijuana. The evidence was locked up in the property room by Officer Clark.

VEHICLE: No vehicle. All four suspects were on foot.

WITNESSES: No witnesses. The original complainant did not want to be identified.

FIELD TEST: The green leafy substance tested positive for marijuana.

Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra smoking

INTERVIEW 1: I asked [redacted] to advise me what had transpired tonight. [redacted] advised me that before the Marine City Police showed up that she and [redacted] were passing around the marijuana blunt and taking hits off of it. [redacted] was released to her mother, [redacted].

INTERVIEW 2: I asked [redacted] to tell me what transpired tonight. [redacted] advised me that she and [redacted] and [redacted] were passing around the marijuana blunt and taking hits off of it. [redacted] advised me that she had a baby two weeks ago.

INTERVIEW 3: I asked [redacted] to tell me what transpired tonight. [redacted] advised me that he and [redacted] and [redacted] were passing around the marijuana blunt and taking hits off of it.

INTERVIEW 4: I asked [redacted] to tell me what transpired tonight. [redacted] advised me that he and [redacted] and [redacted] were smoking a marijuana blunt and passing it around for everyone to hit off of it. [redacted] was released from the scene to his mother. I asked [redacted] what he threw on the ground when he seen the police arrive on scene. [redacted] advised me that he threw a lighter on the ground. No lighter was found around the area but, the marijuana blunt was found by Officer Clark.

Radar Online reports that Catelynn and Tyler were each sentenced to 20 days in jail, but that those sentences were suspended indefinitely after the fines were paid.

As many Teen Mom fans are well aware, there was never any mention of the arrest in Catelynn’s episode of 16 and Pregnant, despite it occurring during the time period that MTV was filming the show. It is our understanding that the arrest might have jeopardized the couple’s open adoption arrangement with Brandon and Teresa and that may have impacted either MTV’s decision to mention the arrests, or Catelynn and Tyler’s decision to not let MTV even know about the arrests.

Despite the seven-year-old police report being uncovered, we still don’t have either a Catelynn Baltierra or Tyler Baltierra mug shot photo. I’m not sure if that’s because they were never officially booked, or because they were juveniles at the time.

    This doesn’t matter now.

  • Dana

    What’s the point in dragging this up now lol

    • Guest

      Maybe to prove that they got the good edit back then.

      • Dana

        Perhaps. Why don’t they just get medical marijuana licenses. Not that there’s anything wrong with using it anyway. It’s harmless. Does more good than bad.

        • TA

          You’re ignorant if you think it’s harmless.

          • Dana

            Is that why they use it for cancer patients and seizures? There have been no negative effects from using THC. It’s a plant. Thats why were trying to legalize it. Please educate yourself.

            • Guest

              Cannabis affects your mood and mind. Please educate yourself.

              • Dana

                Not in negative ways, unless your mixing it with other drugs. It’s calming, which is why it’s used for anxiety and depression. it’s safer than most prescribed medications.

                • Guest

                  I used to smoke every day and it made me depressed, anxious, angry and lazy. I was not mixing it with other drugs.

                  • Dana

                    Then you probably didn’t have good quality. Or the wrong strain. Weed has done more for my anxiety and depression than any psychiatric drug I’ve been on, and I’ve been on a lot. It’s helped many other people I know of to. Weed doesn’t kill people.

                    • Guest

                      I’m not saying it kills people, but it absolutely can have a negative affect on someone’s mental health.

                    • Dana

                      If your using it all day everyday, maybe. If you abuse anything it can have an effect on you. It’s still the least dangerous drug that exists.

                    • KindOfSlightlyCrazy

                      Actually, studies have proven for some people it can make anxiety worse. I have GAD and if I smoke many times throughout the day, it triggers panic attacks for me. It had the same effect on my mom also. However, if I smoke just a little it definitely calms me down. I’ve seen it do great things for many people (including a family friend with cancer going through chemo) so don’t get me wrong, I’m all for it! But it can cause negative reactions on some people. My fiancé and I have smoked regularly for 3+ years, buying from many people so I know it’s not just a bad strain.

                    • Dana

                      It’s hard for me to take that study seriously when there have been so many that say the opposite. Regardless you don’t know how much the test subjects are using. It has to be in moderation. I’m sure it just doesn’t work the same for some people, but like I said I believe it does more good then harm. It’s a shame it hasn’t been completely legalized in the US. That we still have people in jail/prison for marijuana charges.

                    • mary b

                      So glad that you “believe” this and that you are “sure” it works a certain way for certain people (how vague), but when you get a medical degree, maybe only then should you advocate the unmitigated use of a drug and become an authority on which studies are valid or not (how bold of you). Oh wait, you’re a pothead, you have neither the intelligence needed to get into medical school nor stamina or recall needed to succeed there.

                    • Dana

                      Wow you are bitter. Haven’t smoked in years so not a pot head. Also graduated college and lead a pretty successful life in animal health/ rescue. Nice try though. I said I’m sure it works different ways for different people. Much like some antibiotics work for some people and others don’t. If you want to believe one study over hundreds of others that’s fine. Sounds to me like you only want to believe what fits your agenda. Good luck with that mindset.

                • mary b

                  you are either a MAJOR pothead who is in denial or you haven’t been around many people who are addicted to pot (like I have). I am guessing the former, in which case it’s pointless to argue how people truly devolve into slothlike, cloudy, forgetful beings who get edgy when they can’t smoke and freak out when they have to deal with the reality/feelings they use the marijuana to make/numb. I know too many recreational users who turned into addicts and to many addicts who are not productive, living sad lives. Trust me.

                  • Dana

                    Actually I haven’t had to use it in years, so don’t think I qualify as a pot head. When I did use it, it helped more than any other psychiatric drug I’ve been on. & pychatric drugs do more damage to your brain than marijuana. They literally change your brain chemistry. Once again, moderation is key, if all your doing is smoking weed all day then you have a problem. As for me I will always believe marijuana is much safer than anything big pharma provides, and I don’t believe that because I’m a paranoid pot head, but because I’ve actually expiernced what those medications can do. Best of luck to you if you put your faith in Pharma. I’ll stick with the pot.

                    • mary b

                      I get what you are saying and I am well aware of the overuse and abuse of psychotropics and other pharmaceuticals. However, to your specific point about changing brain chemistry: there is nothing necessarily wrong with it. A chemical or hormonal imbalance should be corrected, and if pharmaceuticals, when taken appropriately and under supervision, can do that – then why not take them? Just stating this for this who are on psychotropics/SSRIs and might want to stop because “changing their brain chemistry” seems ominous or fearsome. To be sure, “changing it” might be exactly what you need and want to do with such prescribed medications. That may not be the case for you, Dana, and I can respect that even if I can not unilaterally advocate marijuana, but it might be for many others out there.

                    • Dana

                      Sure some people need their brain chemistry changed, if they want to do that with pharmaceuticals, good for them. Some people prefer natural ways of making them feel better. That actually don’t have a lasting effect on the brain.
                      Its a fact that all of those psychotropic drugs have side effects. Side effects that are arguably much more dangerous than those of marijuana use. I just think it’s much safer and I’m not going to judge people that use it it treat their conditions. I don’t think any of us should. It’s not fair.

            • TA

              There’s a big difference between medicating and self-destructing.

              • Emmy

                Amen. Nothing wrong with normal use, just like drinking a beer every now and then. As long as you don’t drive.
                Too much is a problem though. Beer or strong alcoholic drinks are 100% natural too. Grains, water, herbs and sugar basically, yet what too much alcohol does to a person…
                Weed is recommended for my condition but I don’t use it cause I can’t control how much and what I’m smoking (levels differ when you buy from a coffeeshop, who also sells uncontrolled homegrown or semi homegrown stuff).
                You don’t know how that will interact with other medication you are prescribed.
                Besides that I drive my car daily.
                I will only consider good weed oil when my condition gets that bad that I am not able to drive and/or participate in life because of the pain anymore anyway.

            • mary b

              They also use morphine for pain management and lithium for bipolar disorder – but should we use those substances at will and with abandon. hell no. You can make the case that many drugs that do cause harm and even those that are, as you say, “harm-less” can in fact do good, can have positive benefits. However, there are drugs, I would reckon, that are purely and solely destructive…..heroin, crack, meth, to name a few. More to the point, those drugs used for medicinal, preventative, or palliative purposes require temperance and supervision or they, too, can be dangerous – marijuana among them.

          • twelfthnight

            The pills you get from your pharmacist are more harmful than marijuana. They have laundry lists of side effects, they can cause tons of conditions, make some conditions worse to make others better… Big Pharma is not your best friend.

            • TA

              I know, I stay away from all that sh*t too.

  • twelfthnight

    That picture of them smoking together… Cate looks like a 36 year old grandmother from England with that outfit and hair style and Tyler looks like her either 18 year old son or her 18 year old boy toy who she sugar mamas for.

    • cookie

      What?! They look SO classy in that picture! Hahaha

    • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

      Right! She looks at least 20 years plus. That ugly ass stacked bob and color, that grandmommy scarf, that shirt. Yikes. There was another pic of her from way back and she had on this pink Grease like jacket, a pencil skirt, and these ugly ass old lady white kitten heels. A hot ass mess

      • discoatnine

        Your name is hilarious!! I’m never gonna stop laughing about it

        • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

          Lol thanks

  • Guest

    It’s embarrassing that they seem to still be stuck in the mindset of when they were teenagers.

  • Mrs C.

    The future Butch & April..

    • Thea

      Future?…I’d say original?

  • Toni

    There’s not much point to this article? Now, a recent arrest would be interesting…especially since she smokes and drives.

    • FarrahsCryFace

      Probably with Nova in the back.

  • Nedly Mandingo IV

    Oh ffs it’s a plant, people also use it for medicinal reasons. It’s not like they were shooting up or smoking meth. So what if they smoke weed, it’s a great way to calm the nerves.

    • TA

      I don’t care if it’s just a plant, it’s never okay to be high around your child.

      • Emmy

        Cocain is also from a plant. Is that fine too?
        There are lots of plants that can make you really ill or even kill you when you eat or smoke them.
        There are also many plants that are good as a medicine, yes.
        However, see how many lives are destroyed by medication addictions. Too much of anything is never healthy.
        If you buy weed, buy it from a really good source. Not the cheap homegrown without the propper knowledge shi cause you don’t know what that will do to your mind or body.

        • Dana

          We don’t know how much they were using so can’t really speak to if they were addicted to it or not.

  • Vanessa

    geez getting arrested that soon after giving their child up for adoption…that had to have been rough.

  • LoLo

    They had terrible role models for parents & now are doing the same thing to their child. I feel bad for them to a certain point.

  • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

    Ughh that ugly stacked bob! ?. That thing gave me nightmares.

    • FarrahsCryFace

      So horribly done and makes the back of her head look flat.

      • Catelynn’s Strip of Hair

        Worse style ever. It made her look 45 and she was only 17. Catelynn always used to dress like she was a 40 year old secretary. She never looks good, ever.

  • Guest

    They should have given Nova to Carley’s adoptive parents too. How is it fair that one child gets to grow up in a stable home while the other child has to grow up with unstable drug users? I feel so sorry for little Novalee.

  • Pattipandi

    Given both their parents history of drug addiction and the lives they have lived, I think only having a history of getting arrested for smoking pot is pretty good.
