Controversial 16 & Pregnant alum Nikkole Paulun — who is currently expecting baby No. 2 — was arrested on Friday, Jan. 30, after she was caught shoplifting in her native Munroe, Mich.
The reality star and a friend were caught shoplifting and were subsequently charged with “third degree retail fraud.”

Nikkole has since been released from custody, as she vaguely alluded to her arrest on Twitter.
“Listen, regardless of what happened, I was in the wrong. I knew something happened and didn’t say anything about it and went along with it,” she tweeted on Jan. 31.
“I confessed and admitted everything before anyone else said a word. I feel awful that I let something like this happen to me but honestly everyone’s negative sh-t is NOT helping me. The negative sh-t is not good for anyone, let alone a pregnant woman. I’m remaining as positive as I can for myself and my baby.”

Though the reality star didn’t go on to star in ‘Teen Mom 2’ with other girls in her season of the reality show, she has remained in the spotlight through her involvement in several scandals — including an occasional feud with former costar Jenelle Evans and an alleged “fake” pregnancy.
