Teen Mom Ashley Jones’ baby daddy Bar admits he ‘has an alcohol addiction’ while opening up about arrest during reunion
TEEN Mom 2 star Ashley Jones’ baby daddy Bar Smith admitted he “has an alcohol addiction.”
The 24-year-old opened up about his past DUI arrest during the show’s reunion on Tuesday.
During part 2 of the Teen Mom 2 reunion, Bar was asked to clarify why he wore an ankle monitor during the most recent season of the show.
Bar explained: “It was to make sure that I didn’t consume alcohol while I was battling the case that I was.”
The MTV star revealed he was “actually fighting it initially,” however the situation didn’t work out in his favor “because it’s my word against the polices.’”
Reflecting on the ankle monitor, Bar continued: “So it was pretty much the entire time that I was fighting the case that I had to keep it on because they wanted to make sure that I didn’t access any alcohol, which I was pissed off about in the very beginning but it worked out for the best because at the end of the day I do have an addiction, so it worked out to help me get as far away from it as I could.”
He added that wearing the ankle monitor “absolutely” helped him cut back on drinking alcohol.
MORE LEGAL TROUBLE
While Bar felt comfortable to discuss his DUI from nearly two years ago, Ashley's baby daddy refused to open up about his most recent arrest.
The Sun exclusively reported that Bar was arrested and taken into custody in May, though it was not known the incident took place at Ashley’s party.
According to a police report shared by the Instagram account TeenMom.Tea, Bar was arrested for "willful discharge of firearm in negligent manner" at 9:35 AM on May 16.
He was held at Merced County Sheriff's Main Jail, while the MTV star's bond was set at $25,000.
The Sun confirmed his arrest, while Bar was already released from jail the following day.
PARTY GONE WRONG
His most recent arrest took place after Ashley’s college graduation party and was lightly touched on during the Teen Mom 2 season finale.
Following clips from the party, text onscreen revealed that Bar was arrested later that night.
Cameras were not present to film the situation, as text explained: “The MTV crew left the party at 9pm. Later that night, police received a call that gun shots were fired. No injuries were reported.
“Bar was arrested for willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent matter.”
Ashley and Bar share three-year-old daughter Holly together.
