Nathan Griffith was arrested on Wednesday and jailed for allegedly strangling a family member in Las Vegas. The 35-year-old former star of “Teen Mom 2” is being held at the Clark County Detention Center for battery by strangulation. Bail was set at $5K and he is due to appear at a court hearing at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
According to TMZ, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a call around 9:15 p.m. Wednesday from a home in which Griffith was staying. After conducting an investigation, the responding officers placed Griffith in handcuffs for allegedly committing the crime against an unidentified family member.
From 2013 to 2015, Griffith appeared with his girlfriend, Jenelle Evans, on the MTV reality series “Teen Mom 2,” their tumultuous relationship being a plot point. On the show, they called off their engagement amid cheating allegations.
Griffith, who has a 9-year-old son with Evans, was also arrested in February, on the same charge — for choking girlfriend Victoria Ruggiero in Delray Beach, Fla. According to TMZ, that 911 call reported that former TV star “lost it,” choking Ruggiero and dragging her up a flight of stairs.
Griffith was also arrested in North Carolina in 2019 for driving under the influence.
In May 2022, Griffith revealed that he married May Oyola. The two reportedly reside in Miami.
