David Eason has reportedly been charged with vehicle tampering and causing injury to personal property after he was filmed towing someone's truck
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans‘ husband, David Eason, has reportedly been charged with vehicle tampering and causing injury to personal property only days after posting footage of himself towing someone else’s truck.
According to a criminal summons issued Sunday by police in Wilmington, North Carolina — first published by Radar Online — Eason placed a winch on the victim’s vehicle and caused damage to the transmission. The incident occurred on June 13, the summons states.
On Dec. 19, Eason, 30, posted a video of himself on YouTube towing a truck, though it’s unclear when. Evans, 27, recorded the clip and she can be heard laughing in the background.
“If you’re going to park this close and there’s no money in the meter…” she says. “Pull that motherf—ker out of the way.”
Along with the clip on Eason’s YouTube, he wrote, “Learn the right way to deal will a——- who think it’s cool to block you in a parking space. Good thing my trailer has a folded tongue that allowed me to get my truck out so I can tow him out of the way, in order to move my boat.”
Wilmington police could not immediately be reached by PEOPLE for comment.
Evans and Eason declined to comment to PEOPLE on the advice of their lawyers, but Evans said she would be available for an interview at a later date.
Eason’s summons shows he is due in court on Jan. 28.
After seeing his YouTube video last week, Teen Mom 2 viewers took matters into their own hands and tweeted the video to Wilmington police.
“This is David and Jenelle Eason…who believe they are above the law. Just thought you’d be interested in this!” one user wrote.
Eason’s charge comes after he stirred up controversy last month when he posted a series of photos and video of himself holding a Confederate flag during a visit to the Grand Canyon on Instagram.
“It’s just where I’m from, my heritage. Kind like when people fly a flag that represents their state because it’s where they are from,” he responded to a fan that asked what the flag means to him.
“If someone thinks it has to do with racism or slaves they aren’t thinking enough,” he continued. “More racist people fly the beloved American flag, which was the flag flying on the American slave ships…No concern there?”
