David Eason, husband of former 'Teen Mom' star Jenelle Evans was reportedly taken into police custody on Friday, June 12, on charges of assault. Cops were called and he was arrested after he got into a fight with one of Jenelle's male friends and hit him with a pistol. CeleberNation reported that the fight stemmed from Eason accusing her friends of stealing his truck keys.

Jenelle told the media that she's "saddened and shaking" by what happened. "It's time for me to move on from this relationship and find happiness for my kids and myself elsewhere," she said. Jenelle reportedly arrived with her two male friends at the family home in North Carolina to pick up a couple of her things, after a week of arguing with Eason. Shortly after, a fight broke out between Eason and one of the male friends and that was when Eason reportedly struck him with a gun.

Jenelle and her friends went straight to the police who noted that there were injuries on the back and neck of the man who was attacked. Eason was let off in an hour from the Columbus County Jail on an "unsecure bond", that allowed him to go free without a deposit. "I'm upset how everything ended up and wish the situation was taken in a more serious manner, I didn't agree with the unsecured bond," Jenelle said about his release.

"I just want to let the public, tabloids and my fans know that I'M OK, I'M SAFE AND SO ARE THE KIDS! I'm going to take a few days out to myself to gather my thoughts and focus on what's going on so I won't be on social media much. I love you all for the support that you all have shown me and I'll be stronger and better than ever soon!" she wrote on her Facebook page after the incident.

Eason has had a number of run-ins with the law in the past. According to Starcasm, he was arrested nine times on a number of charges including failure to appear, possession for drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor breaking and entering, before he met Jenelle  In 2019, Jenelle's sons Kaiser and Jace were removed from her care after Eason shot their dog, Nugget, to "protect" their daughter Ensley. Eason was also accused of abuse by Jenelle in the past and the father of her sons Nathan Griffith also claimed that Eason had abused his son Kaiser.
