Jenelle Evans is breaking her silence on her husband’s recent DUI arrest, in a hilarious 13-minute YouTube video where she describes the arrest blow-by-blow!
The ‘Teen Mom’ star appeared in a lengthy YouTube video with her husband — David Eason — sitting side-by-side inside their home in North Carolina, explaining in detail how he ended up behind bars. The video is hilarious, and the reality stars give a whole explanation for how all of David’s legal issues are connected in one way or another.
In the 13-minute clip, Jenelle starts by saying the entire thing started back in 2018 when David was busted for towing someone’s car out of a parking spot without their consent. At the time, a court suspended his license and the reality star claims he was unaware of the situation. Following the incident, David was cited for speeding on a different day and missed his court date.

So…the couple takes a few minutes to explain that somehow he ended up in a DUI checkpoint after dropping his daughter off at a football game.
According to David, the officers removed him from the vehicle and initially placed him under arrest for DUI. Of course, he was also charged with driving without a license. But, the officers noticed an “open container” in the “passenger” area of the truck — and busted him for having open alcohol in the vehicle.
In the video, Jenelle and David explain that the can of booze wasn’t something he was sipping on while driving, but a piece of trash picked up from their yard and placed in the vehicle for a trash run. Obviously, you can see how this was a hard thing to sell the police officers on the scene. But, after initially refusing to undergo field sobriety tests, David relented and took a breathalyzer on the spot.

The couple claims he blew a 0.01, which is clearly under the legal limit to drive a vehicle. Interestingly, the officers had a magistrate on site inside the command post — and were able to adjust the charges on the spot. As you can imagine, in the hilarious video, Jenelle is not happy with the fact that officers decided to take Eason to jail anyways — costing him $750 in bail. David offered up a copy of the court documents, proving the officers dropped the DUI charges and only cited him for the open container.
The best part, the couple takes the opportunity to speak to young people everywhere, telling them to learn from their mistakes — and take care of tickets and court dates. Or…you will end up behind bars! Scroll Down To See The Video!
