David Eason— Husband of Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Jenelle Evans— Arrested: Get the Details! (Updated with Exclusive Details!)

“I’m ’bout to fill all y’all’s streets with uppercuts…and my expired tags and revoked license!”

UPDATE #2: According to a clerk at the Columbus County Courthouse who spoke to The Ashley to on Monday, David’s charge of “Driving While Impaired” has been “closed out,” or dismissed. The reason for the dismissal, according to the clerk, was that there was “no probable cause” for the charge. 

Over the weekend, a Twitter user (who has posted plenty of reliable info related to Jenelle in the past) leaked what is supposedly David’s breathalyzer results from Friday night. The Ashley can’t confirm that this paperwork is real; however, if it is real, it proves that David did, indeed, pass the breathalyzer test and only blew at .01%. (In North Carolina, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while noticeably impaired or with an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or above, so David would have been within the legal limits.)

His driving with license revoked charge remains, with that one listed as “open” and with a bond of $750 (which David paid). As for the open container charge, that is still listed as having an “unavailable” charge code, which means it could still be pending. There is no bond amount listed for that particular charge.

UPDATE #1: In the time since this article was originally published, the North Carolina Judicial Branch website has updated, revealing that there are actually two separate incidents in question here. There is a case in Pender County, North Carolina, with a court date on February 9, 2022, as well as a case pending in Columbus County, North Carolina, with a court date of February 16, 2022.

The Pender case is reflected in the original story published Saturday. However, the Pender charges did not occur on Friday night as The Ashley originally stated. (The Ashley regrets this error.) 

However, The Ashley is now adding David’s other case, which does stem from his arrest on Friday night, which actually took place in Columbus County. On Friday night, David was charged with Driving While Impaired, Driving On a Revoked License and Possession of an Open Container of Alcohol in Passenger Area of Car. (See the end of the article for all additional updates!)

The Ashley apologizes for the confusion. (With so many court dates and arrests, it’s hard to keep all the swamp happenings straight!) The story has been updated below, and The Ashley will continue to update it to reflect the most-accurate information available.

Original Article (published Saturday):

David Eason spent a little time outside the swamp on Friday night, taking yet another trip to the Ye Olde Slammer!

The Ashley can confirm that David— who is the husband of former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans— was arrested around 10:30 p.m. on Friday night. (It was a bad day for the Easons, as Friday was also the day Jenelle had her upcoming sweaty lounge wear line cancelled by the designer.)

Anyway, David received three charges, which he will have to answer for in court on February 16, 2022.

Jenelle when she learned David had been arrested yet again…probably…

The first charge is Driving While Impaired. (This is essentially the same as a DUI charge.)

This is not the first time David has been charged with this. He was charged with DWI in 2012, 2013 and twice in 2014.

The next charge—Driving With License Revoked— is serious, as David already has had at least one previous DWLR charge. (He was charged with this in July 2020; The Ashley does not know if he was convicted on that charge.)

If a person in North Carolina is convicted of this crime three times, that person may lose their license permanently, according to the official North Carolina DMV website.

You can’t believe nuthin’ ya read on those Interwebs, though.”

According to court clerk The Ashley previously spoke with, a North Carolina resident’s drivers license can be revoked for any number of things, but most likely is due to unpaid traffic tickets, or not showing up for court for traffic offenses. (The Ashley is not stating that is why David’s was revoked, though.)

It should be noted that David actually had a court date for a traffic offense in nearby New Hanover County on Friday. If David failed to show up for this court date, or failed to pay an outstanding traffic ticket, this could have been why he had his license revoked. 

The North Carolina DMV website states that, “if a [person’s] driver’s license is revoked, their driving privilege is terminated and can only be reinstated if they meet eligibility requirements and any conditions or terms set forth in a hearing by the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles.”

According to the Columbus County Sherriff Department, David was also handed a charge of Possession of an Open Container in the passenger area of the car. (This charge is an infraction.)

He was booked into jail around 10:30 p.m. Friday night and eventually bonded out of jail around 2:40 a.m. on Saturday morning.

For the other incident— in Pender County— David was charged with Driving On a Revoked License, Driving with Expired Tags and/or Registration, as well as Driving with Excessive Speed. 

“‘Somebody say speed?”

These charges were not from Friday night, as The Ashley previously stated. (The Ashley regrets this error.) According to court records, David was tested on the scene during this incident (which, again, was not on Friday) to see if he was driving under the influence. He passed the test.

This is hardly David’s first arrest. Last year, David was arrested twice (in 48 hours!) One of those arrests came after he failed to show up in court for a misdemeanor charge against him. The next day, he was arrested and charged with “Assault with a Deadly Weapon,” as well as “Communicating Threats.” (You can read more about that incident here.) 

In 2016, David was arrested for violating a domestic violence protective order against him. (His second baby mama Olivia Leedham had filed the order, preventing David from approaching her or their shared son Kaden. David approached Kaden in the grocery store and was arrested for it.)

“Other than this stuff, I mean…”

He was arrested a whopping FOUR times in 2014, according to Starcasm. On February 21, 2014, he was arrested for Driving While Impaired. Three days later, he was arrested again for Driving While Impaired. In May 2014, he was busted for a bond surrender, and in June of that year he was arrested for failing to appear in court.

In February 2013, he was busted for Driving While Impaired, as well as Reckless Driving to Endanger.

In November 2012, he was arrest for Driving While Impaired, along with Reckless Driving to Endanger. That same year, he had four other arrests, with charges including larceny, possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and willful and wanton injury to real property.

Jenelle and David have yet to comment publicly on David’s latest arrest.

  1. Its the HATTERS.
    David didn’t do anything, the haters made him drink & then called the cops …yeah not his fault at all

  2. On the bright side, if he goes to jail Maryssa might be able to live with her grandparents full time and escape the land.

  3. Is North Carolina fun and games??? They allow THREE times to drive without a license before punishing you? He has had 3+ DWIS but served no time? I am so confused. In New York we have people serving months for DWIS. Is this behavior so normal that the North Carolinians literally don’t care?

  4. Why do people keep commenting about Leah and Kail dating people of color? I hope they delete those racist comments! As per David I’d love to go a couple rounds with him.

  5. This a$$hole needs to to prison. How many times does he have to break the law before they finally stop just giving him a slap on the wrist?

  6. Since this is David’s second DWI in a month and his 4th one in 7 years (he had 2 in 2014), it appears he’s looking at license suspension 1 to 4 years (they look at the last 5 years for this apparently). Jail time could be 14 days up to 2 years. I don’t practice law, nor do I live in North Carolina. This is off a website from a quick Google search so take it for what it is; speculation.

  7. When they say “Driving While Impaired”, do they mean “impaired by alcohol”, or just “impaired by David just being the way he is?”

    1. Lol! That would be amusing if DWIs worked like that. But impaired from alcohol, considering he had an open container in the car. In general a DWI could be medication/drug (opioid, benzodiazepines, or sedatives. Meth, marijuana..etc), or alcohol.

    2. It’s generally impaired by anything (there is scope to be prosecuted for just being over tired). The impaired verbage also allows for drugs that aren’t alcohol and also allows for prosecution when under the legal bac level. I’m not sure of any cases of people being prosecuted for impairment due to mental deficits tho.

  8. Hhhmmm, just awhile ago they said Barb was drinking & driving.
    We’ll look who has a mug shot, not Barb

  9. Soooo what was Jenelle just saying about how people keep holding the decisions she made at 17 against her? David has easily been the worst decision she ever made.

  10. With the number of crimes, she and her husband get arrested for they should just keep a law firm on retainer at this point.

    One DUI is a fluke, two DUI means you might want to stop drinking for a while, four DUIs mean you need rehab.

    This means Jenelle is the only licensed driver on the land, so I guess that means they can sell his car for the court fees and all his back child support.

    And she wonders why brands don’t want to work with her.

  11. Staying with this loser is the worst decision she’s ever made. And that’s saying an awful lot considering she also decided to shoot heroin. She needs to admit that she has steered her life’s path into a ditch by staying with him and she won’t be able to move forward until she unloads his malignant ass AND gets into therapy.

  12. He’s such an asshole. And jenelle really sits there and plays dumb and cries on freaking Tik Tok like he’s not the reason why she can’t keep a brand deal. They’re both such trash.

  13. I’m just getting sick of it all. With these two it has never been funny, but there was some morbid curiosity in all their shenanigans. The way they continue to somehow dodge any culpability for their shit is infuriating, so I can’t even feel excited that perhaps THIS time they might actually be punished for being such terrible people.
    Fuck them. Honestly, just fuck them both. Everybody would be better off if they just disappeared.

    1. He’s not the reason… he’s 1, but not the only reason. She said a bunch of racist stuff on LeBron James’ Twitter and I guess sewsewsew is affiliated with his companies or sponsors. She’s getting what her racist, drug abusing, child abusing, animal abusing butt deserves.

    1. Right! Kieffah has/had his demons, but his demons look like angels compared to the devil in the flesh that is David Eason.

  14. Just another brick in Jenelle’s wall of ‘everybody ruins my business opportunities’.

    She’s dumb AF for not dropping his ass. Her kids will see this one day and realize that they cannot compare with her love for attention, drugs, or David Eason. Can’t wait for their tell-all’s.

  15. Ok so this time NC needs to keep his ass behind bars and not give him the opportunity to kill someone or another somethings.

  16. Did he have any of the kids in the car? It’s bad enough that he is endangering everyone on the road around him, but does Jenelle let him drive with the kids?? With his drinking and REVOKED license?? Jesus. Just pray for those poor kids. (I’ll throw in an extra “God damn you, Nathan!” for failing to save Kaiser from all the dangers of David and The Swamp!)

    1. I’m gonna say.. Probably not. I’m guessing they had a huge fight and he went off half cocked and drunk and, boom. Gel.

  17. His license was probably revoked because of all his DUI’s.
    And “ According to court records, David was tested on the scene during this incident (which, again, was not on Friday) to see if he was driving under the influence. He passed the test.”
    He FAILED the test.

  18. Any man that doesn’t support their family financially isn’t a man. How are they paying for anything? Doesn’t have jobs but they’re always drinking corona or smoking.Jenelle stays with him because they’re just a like.

    1. Eh. I didn’t downvote you, but a relationship is a partnership. One person could contribute to the family by staying home and taking care of the home and kids while his partner works. I wouldn’t respect one less for doing so. Same is true if both partners are temporarily unemployed, but they’re working together to better their family situation – good for them. But these idiot grifters need to get it together.

  19. He has been dragging her down since the day they met.

    She has decided to sink with him and that house on the land, and with that decision, nothing will get better, and NO deals will be made because when people think you are harming animals and kids, they will make it their fucking job to make sure you don’t get to skate and be a smug fool.

    Never too late tho Janelle, put your kids first for once, instead of a man.

  20. While it terrifies me what David is like at home (especially under the influence) – how hard is it to drink and stay home?

    He shouldn’t be driving anyway, muchless intoxicated. Just leave his ass in jail.

    1. I’m wondering if they got a sitter and went out. Why because JE had a hard day. And the alcohol in the passenger side was JE & he took the blame.
