‘Teen Mom 2’: David Eason Bails on His Court Date and Now Could Face Arrest

David Eason spent the majority of 2019 in court, and it looks like 2020 will be more of the same for the troubled father of three. Eason isn’t just dealing with the legal fallout of his divorce from former Teen Mom 2 star, Jenelle Evans. In fact, Eason has an ongoing court case back in his home state of North Carolina, too. Apparently, his calendar is so full that he missed an appearance, and now there is a warrant out for his arrest. Eason could be locked up pretty soon, from the sounds of it.

What court appearance did Eason miss?

Eason’s missed court appearance could have serious legal consequences, but this time it has absolutely nothing to do with Evans. Eason was allegedly due in court over a 2018 incident where he illegally towed a private citizen’s vehicle. The owner of the car, Terry Hill, pressed charges, alleging Eason damaged his vehicle in the process. The court date was Jan. 9 and Eason was a no-show.

In December 2018, Eason shared a video that depicts him pulling a truck out of the way on a busy street. In the video, Evans can be heard claiming the owner of the vehicle didn’t put money in the meter and that he was blocking Eason from accessing his boat. The truck appears to be parked in a legal space, evidenced by the lines on the road. Charges were filed shortly after Eason uploaded the video.

Could David Eason be arrested?

The simple answer is yes. According to TMZ, an arrest warrant has been issued for Eason because he failed to show up at his court date. The judge presiding over the case signed the order, and police are currently searching for the father of three. There is a $1000 bond attached to the case.

According to OK! Magazine, Eason will need to turn himself in at a police station, regardless of whether or not his attorney appears to plead his case. According to reports, Eason will need to see a judge who will issue another court date. If Eason is a  no-show for that date, he’ll be arrested again. He has not commented on why he failed to show up in the Wilmington courthouse for the appointment.

When will he next appear in court with Jenelle Evans?

It’s probably a good idea for Eason to take care of his legal troubles in North Carolina sooner rather than later. He needs to be in Nashville, Tennessee on Jan. 14 to continue to battle his soon-to-be-ex. Eason and Evans are scheduled to face off in a Nashville courtroom on that date, and Eason will most likely want to show up.

While a judge presiding over the case is controlling their divorce, they also have the power to extend the order of protection that Evans has on Eason. The order was issued shortly after Evans announced her separation on Twitter on Oct. 31. The order was extended into the new year when the couple last stepped foot in court back in November 2019. The ruling is in place until at least Jan. 14, and protects both Evans and the two minor children that live with her.

Both Ensley Eason and Kaiser Griffin are included in the order, meaning Eason can not visit with this 2-year-old daughter until a judge deems that he is not a threat. He has repeatedly posted about missing his daughter. It is not known if Eason is allowed to see his son, Kaden,5. Eason shares Kaden with his ex-girlfriend, Olivia Leedham. Eason does, however, have custody of his 12-year-old daughter, Maryssa Eason.
