Unexpected dad Max Schenzel’s continued disregard for the terms of his probation and the law has finally caught up with him. The 20-year-old reality star is currently behind bars in Arizona after being booked for a probation violation.
As we previously reported, Max’s extremely tolerant probation officer finally got fed up with Max’s non-compliance issues as she officially filed to revoke his probation and an arrest warrant was issued earlier this month. The warrant caught up with Max on Monday as he was booked into Maricopa County Jail at roughly 10:45 AM. According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, he was taken into custody after actually appearing in court — a rarity for Max.
The probation revocation is the only charge listed for Max, and he is currently being held without bond. His next scheduled court appearance is a revocation arraignment hearing and disposition scheduled for February 18. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department website lists a “Total bonds and fines” amount of $900.00, which I am guessing includes fees and fines that Max owes from his numerous legal issues over the past couple years.
UPDATE – It appears that Max was released the following day. In addition to no longer being listed in custody on the jail’s website, Max posted a selfie taken at his dad’s apartment. We are looking into whether or not he posted bond, or if there was another condition for his release.
Max was on probation stemming from his felony theft conviction after pleading guilty to stealing credit cards and more from the sleeping 77-year-old grandmother of his friend in 2018. His original jail sentence for the conviction was three months, which is more than likely what he is facing yet again.
Max and Chloe have remained silent on social media since his arrest. It’s unclear if Chloe plans to stand behind her promise to leave Max if he had to spend more than a few days in jail.
In addition to his probation issues, Max is also still facing charges stemming from his domestic assault arrest in December after a heated altercation with Chloe resulted in Max throwing a phone, hitting Chloe in the face, and giving her black eyes.
In case you missed our previous post about Max’s probation being revoked, here is a list of the non-compliance issues cited by his probation officer:
This officer has reason to believe that the defendant has failed to comply with the following term(s) of probation:
• The defendant committed the crime of assault-injury domestic violence on or about December 30, 2019.

More legal troubles for #Unexpected dad Max Schenzel as he was charged with domestic assault on Dec 30. While dealing with that charge, Max was served with a warrant stemming from a 2018 DUI arrest that we were previously unaware of. https://t.co/L2caU3si8d
