Former reality television star Jenelle Evans' estranged husband, David Eason, is reportedly a wanted man in North Carolina. According to TMZ, it has allegedly to do with an illegal truck-towing incident in 2018.
Eason, who along with Evans rose to fame with MTV's ‘Teen Mom 2’, was reportedly ordered to appear in court Thursday for the case. According to TMZ, however, he did not show up, leading the judge to sign a warrant for his arrest.
In the summer of 2018, Eason allegedly illegally towed a man's truck. But that wasn’t all. He also shared a video of the incident on YouTube. The video was allegedly shot by Evans. “Learn the right way to deal [with] a**holes who think it's cool to block you in a parking space,” he captioned the video, adding, “Good thing my trailer has a folded tongue that allowed me to get my truck out so I can tow him out of the way, in order to move my boat.”
Per reports, the authorities were not aware of the towing incident until months later when Eason uploaded the video to his YouTube page. The owner of the vehicle ultimately pressed charges, and Eason was charged with tampering with a vehicle and injury to personal property.
This is not Eason’s first legal issue. Evans filed for divorce at the end of October 2019 and even got a restraining order against him a few days later. As per legal documents obtained by E! News, Evans claimed the legal precautions were made “because of [Eason's]recent threats, his history of violence, his erratic behavior and his large stockpile of weapons, I am scared for my life and my children's well-being.”
Around the same time, Evans took to Instagram to reveal she had taken her kids and moved out of her house with Eason. She wrote: “With time away from ‘Teen Mom’, I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now. The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process. I appreciate the support from everybody who has asked how I am. Me and the kids are doing great. We need some time to be together, but you’ll hear from us again soon.”
Eason had also called the cops in November 2019 over an alleged dog theft. He had also denigrated Evans on his social media several times since their split.
Eason had also killed their family dog last year for biting their daughter Ensley. According to the Daily Mail, the fallout from this incident led to Evans getting fired from ‘Teen Mom’. It also led to the couple losing temporary custody of Ensley.
