Records show that Nathan Griffith is behind bars after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Griffith, who shares son Kaiser with Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans, was wanted for a domestic dispute with ex-girlfriend Jessica Henry that allegedly turned violent. Henry and her roommate told a responding officer that Griffith choked Henry at her home. Griffith left before the police arrived at the scene.
Nathan was found and booked into Myrtle Beach’s J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday afternoon on open container and giving false information to law enforcement charges, according to jail records. There was no public record of charges for domestic violence being filed against him.
Griffith remained in jail Tuesday morning.
UPDATE – We spoke with a source close to the situation who tells us that the reason the domestic violence charge doesn’t show up is because Nathan hasn’t formally been served on that charge yet. We are told that he will be served soon soon the domestic violence charge, it’s just a matter of time — it could happen while he is in jail or when he goes before the judge.
UPDATE – We now have more details about Nathan’s arrest courtesy of the police report obtained by Myrtle Beach Online. According tot he report, Horry County police officers were dispatched to a home in the Little River at approximately 3:30PM on Monday. The dispatch was in response to a call reporting a wanted person.
En route to the address, police received information that Nathan Griffith was reportedly at the residence and that he had active felony warrants out for his arrest. Officers on the scene noticed a strong smell of alcohol on Nathan, and a search of the vehicle uncovered a brown paper bag from the passenger side containing what appeared to be a liquor bottle.
From Myrtle Beach Online:
Officers said they found two opened mini bottles of vodka and a large opened bottle of vodka inside. Griffith was then arrested in connection with open container of alcohol inside a vehicle. Police said they verified Griffith was deceiving them about who he was by giving a false name to elude arrest, and he was also charged with giving false information to police, the report states.
