‘Unexpected’ Dad Max Schenzel Pleads Guilty to Felony Charge Stemming From February Car Theft

Another day, another court case…

Unexpected dad (and repeated law-breaker) Max Schenzel pleaded guilty to a felony last week and will return to court in May to be sentenced for his (latest) wrongdoing, according to Starcasm. 

Court documents obtained by the site state that Max plead guilty to a felony count of Unlawful Use of Means of Transportation, stemming from a February 26 incident in which an individual called the police to report that his vehicle had been stolen by Max. A second call made to police reported that Max was in another vehicle, which also wasn’t his. 

At the time of his initial booking, Max was facing four felony counts as he reportedly had attempted to run from police and while being handcuffed, he allegedly tried to kick one of the police officers in the groin (as you do). In addition to the Unlawful Use of Means of Transportation charge, Max was charged with Aggravated Assault on an Officer, Resisting Arrest and Theft. 

Fortunately for Max, all charges aside from the Class 5 felony count for Unlawful Use of Means of Transportation were dropped by prosecutors and the owner of the second vehicle did not press charges. 

“I should have kept Max away from my groin! If I had, I wouldn’t have gotten knocked up!”

Max’s recent guilty plea resulted in an automatic probation violation from his previous felony conviction in December 2018. As you may recall, that incident involved Max stealing credit cards and casino vouchers from his friend’s sleeping grandmother (again…as you do…)

Max is also facing separate assault charges from two altercations that occurred between himself and his baby mama Chloe Mendoza in December 2019 and February 2020. A pre-trial conference will be held for both of those cases this week. 


Until his May hearing, Max will be under the supervision of pretrial services, which may include drug and alcohol monitoring as well as electronic monitoring. 

Despite Max’s frequent run-ins with the law, Chloe said a month ago that she stills wants “to end up with him,” though she denied that they were together at that moment. However, it appears that their relationship status has changed since then. According to Max’s Instagram bio, he and Chloe are in fact back on. 

Max and Chloe have yet to comment publicly on Max’s plea.

  1. I can hear Chloe’s mother, Jessica, now screaming, “Max is the devil, he is NEVER going to change, ect….” Jessica needs as much help for her anger and mental stability as Max.

  2. Where are the Max defenders now? Chloe’s Mom was right to do everything she could to stop the relationship between these two! He’ll never change.

    1. Chloe’s mother is insane. Where is Chloe’s biological father? What type of mother was Jessica when Chloe was a toddler? Max could get sober for 10yrs, obtain a career, even win a Nobel Peace prize and Jessica would still hate him.

  3. Omg his ig profile says “I’m here for a good time not a long time” aka carpe diem for idiots… what a great role model this guy is.

    I remember one of the first episodes of their season where he said that being teen parents made them more likely to be successful, and that they would probably be millionaires in a few years ???. How’s that working out for ya, bud?

  4. I’ve never watched this show, but I crack up every time I see some dramatic headline about this kid with felonies and arrests and that type of thing, because he literally looks like he’s 8.

  5. Chloe seriously enough Max is nowhere ready to grow up & be a father or have an adult relationship!! Sure he’ll have sex with you & live with you but he also blames you or your family for all his problems & he has no problem picking up his hands to hit you!! That’s not an adult by any means, those are the actions of an immature spoiled entitled brat!!
    Do what’s best for your daughter end things with Max, get into serious therapy to deal with his emotional, mental & physical abuse!!

  6. Cute baby, it’s a shame both of her parents are (Chloe still wants to end up with him?!?!), but the really shocking thing is that this douchetwat has 50.8k followers! Really makes you wonder.

  7. This seems like it’s going to be a long long road to getting himself back on track (if he ever even was on track). As someone who’s been through something similar with daughters father, chloe, please just focus on Ava!! Support & encourage max mentally and emotionally because you do want him to end up being a good father no matter how you feel personally about him. And that will only benefit your daughter in the long run.

  8. This kid always looks like guys in high school that got shoved into lockers to me.

    stay lit, young felon
