Casey Aldridge, who was once engaged to Jamie Lynn Spears and shares daughter Maddie with her, was arrested in Mississippi last week, according to TMZ.

TMZ, who obtained a copy of the arrest report, reported that police officers in Natchez, Mississippi, were responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle parked on the side of the road when they found Aldridge unconscious inside the vehicle.

The police then transported him to the hospital, where he was subsequently arrested after waking up.

TMZ reports that Aldridge was arrested for possession of oxycodone, lorazepam, Xanax and drug paraphernalia.

The Natchez Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Aldridge and Spears, now 27, dated and were eventually engaged. Spears, then 16 years old, announced that she was pregnant with Aldridge’s baby in December 2007. Not long before she became pregnant, her Nickelodeon show Zoey 101 was canceled, though Spears maintains the cancellation was unrelated to her pregnancy.
