According to the court documents, Butch was sentenced to 20 days in prison for charges related to his arrest over the summer. In June, Butch was arrested for driving without a license. For this charge, Tyler’s dad served time at the St. Clair County jail in November of last year. He was released Dec. 2.

As In Touch previously reported, Butch was previously sent to jail mid-November after missing a meeting with his parole officer. Tyler broke the news to wife Catelynn Lowell on an episode of Teen Mom OG.

“Well guess what? Dad is in jail,” Ty told his wife. “He’s in jail. He missed his parole meeting for the first time — isn’t that a little weird? He never misses his parole meetings.”

Tyler believed the reason behind his arrest could’ve been due to a possible drug relapse. The reality star suspected his father was “off the wagon” after noticing his changing sleep schedule and late nights out.

“I know exactly what’s going on,” he said. “I think he’s using. I think he used or he relapsed.”

Tyler’s father has quite the rap sheet. The troubled reality star was also sent to jail early October after reportedly operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license. A spokesperson for the jail confirmed the arrest, and he was released Oct.13.

Both Catelynn and Tyler have frequently voiced their upset following their father’s numerous run-ins with the law.
