After he returned from prison in 2015, it appeared that Butch Baltierra of “Teen Mom” would no longer want to be back there. But Tyler’s dad has once again served time in jail, according to reports.
The Hollywood Life reported that Baltierra was put behind the bars for operating a vehicle on a suspended license in June. The documents obtained by the US Weekly, claim that Butch Baltierra pleaded guilty in September. A St. Clair Michigan County Jail spokesperson confirmed that Tyler’s beloved but troubled father has spent six days behind the bars.
Baltierra’s arrest added up to Tyler’s plight, who was already going through a lot with wife Catelynn Lowell’s depression. Baltierra, 54, has been in jail for most of Tyler’s life, and his release from the jail sounded like a blessing for Tyler.
“Catelynn and Tyler are breaking the news to friends,” a source told Radar Online. “They are obviously upset.”
He has been either released or transferred to another prison last Thursday. However, from Baltierra’s Facebook account it appears that he is still behind the bars. Lowell informed to a friend, who enquired how Baltierra was posting to social media, that his girlfriend was using his phone in his absence.
While he was serving time in jail last time, Baltierra had expressed remorse at what he has done. “I feel bad about some of the things I’ve done,” he said. He was released on August 2015 from his last prison stint. He was turned in for home invasion, larceny and breaking and entering.
However, according to a report by the Hollywood Life, it appears that Baltierra is sober and is keeping away from using drugs even during his latest brush with the law.
The arrest of Tyler’s father came shortly after he had survived a rough patch in his relationship with Lowell due to her battle with depression. The 24-year-old “16 & Pregnant” alum opened up to MTV about her stormy relationship with Tyler after seeking help from an Arizona-based treatment program for mental health issues and marijuana use.
