Who is Adam Lind?
Lind's criminal record list runs long — he has been behind bars for alleged domestic violence and not paying child support. His recent arrest was in August 2020 for "failure to pay child support." Lind has dealt with numerous child support issues in the past, including another arrest and two warrants ordering him to pay.
Lind has been accused of domestic assault by many of his ex-girlfriends, two of whom filed restraining orders against him, He was also arrested for multiple DUIs and other traffic-related problems like driving with a revoked license. He also failed two court-mandated drug tests, according to a report.
Lind is also the biological father of Paislee, his daughter with ex Taylor Halbur. He no longer is the legal father as he got his paternal rights canceled after consenting to Paislee's stepfather's request to adopt her in September 2018. According to The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Lind appeared in court and was asked if he was aware he was terminating his paternal rights to 5-year-old Paislee permanently and he answered in the positive.
Adam Lind reportedly killed two dogs
In 2014, Lind's ex Halbur claimed in court documents that he killed her two dogs but she never reported it, according to In Touch. Lind was never arrested or charged with animal cruelty, according to local authorities. The allegations made by Halbur came two months after Lind had allegedly tested positive for meth and amphetamines.
Branding Lind as a "dangerous person", Halbur claimed in court documents obtained by Radar Online, “Upon information and belief, when we were dating and lived together, he killed two of my puppies. There was also another relationship that he was in, where he may have killed that person’s dog. If you hurt a dog, you will hurt a child!”
Halbur had also accused Lind of acting abusively towards her and using steroids during their time together. “His life has spun out of control ever since he found fame, or infamy for that matter, on a television series run on MTV called 'Teen Mom 2'. He has come to view himself as a person above the law, above social norms, and above all rules,” she alleged.
Adam Lind has been arrested multiple times for domestic violence
In November 2017, Lind was arrested following an assault on Halbur and was taken to a local county jail where he was held without bond. He had four counts against him: attempting to cause bodily harm, recklessly attempting to cause bodily harm, attempting to cause imminent bodily harm, and intentionally causing bodily harm.
Lind's issues with the law started as early as 2007. His criminal record is truly a mile long and except for the years 2016 and 2019, Lind has repeatedly faced legal issues. For his criminal record till 2013, click here.
