He’s a free man! 90 Day Fiancé star Nicole Nafziger’s father, Tyler Nafizger, has been released from jail after being arrested for battery and possession of drug paraphernalia, In Touch can confirm. The TLC alum shared a new video to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, November 12, showing Tyler spending quality time with his granddaughter May.
“Hanging out with papa Nafziger and great grandma Nafziger,” Nicole, 26, captioned the clip of May putting on an adorable performance for her loved ones. The reality star’s father was all smiles while watching May play outside.
According to court records, Tyler was able to go home on November 7. Nicole’s dad was previously taken into custody after he allegedly got into an altercation with a woman at a gas station near Manatee County, Florida, on October 21. The two supposedly met a couple days before the incident and he had “agreed to help her move out of her half way house.”
“The victim stated she got into a verbal argument by the offender’s vehicle with the offender,” the documents revealed about what happened. “The victim stated the argument turned physical when the offender put his arm around her throat.”
The woman was apparently “able to breathe and was not in fear for her life,” but she thought he was going to “hurt her.”
Tyler was later placed under arrest when the cops located him. Nicole’s father claimed that he “grabbed” the woman’s hand while trying to get her out of the car during the dispute, but insisted that “he did not choke her.” However, he found himself in hot water after informing police that he did have a glass pipe in his right front pocket, which ended up testing positive for cocaine.
It looks like Tyler is grateful to be reunited with family after his stint in jail. While taking to Instagram, Nicole also shared a photo of her daughter, May, enjoying a game of pick up sticks this afternoon.
Fans were first introduced to Nicole on the hit TLC reality show 90 Day Fiancé. She documented her long-distance love story with Azan Tefou (a.k.a. Hassan M’Raouni) after they sparked a connection on a dating app. Nowadays, they are still going strong.
At least things are starting to look up for Nicole and her family!
