John Schneider has checked himself into jail to begin serving his sentence for not paying spousal support to his ex-wife, Elvira.

Schneider was booked into jail in downtown Los Angeles at 10:29 AM on Tuesday. He will serve three days behind bars.

The former “Dukes of Hazzard” star had until June 23 to turn himself in.

As The Blast first reported, Schneider was found guilty of contempt earlier this year for failing to pay $185,000 in back spousal support. Schneider begged the court for forgiveness and claimed financial hardship in an effort to avoid jail time.

UPDATE

6/13/18 — Schneider was only locked up for a few hours and was released at 3:46 PM PT the same day.
