“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans doesn’t have the best track record with men, and her reputed new boyfriend, David Eason, might be the latest bad boy she’s gotten involved with. His arrest record was already uncovered by curious Twitter fans, and Radar Online further discovered he was accused of choking and threatening to kill an ex-girlfriend.

The arrest for assault reportedly took place April 19, 2014. Eason’s ex-girlfriend’s name has not been revealed; it is redacted in the quote from the police report. “The Defendant did assault [redacted], a female person, by grabbing the victim around the throat and saying to the victim, ‘I will kill you b----,' ” documents state, according to the New Hanover Clerk of Court’s office in North Carolina. Eason, a 27-year-old father of two, denied the accusations and was found not guilty July 24, Radar Online added.

It looks like Evans, 23, doesn’t mind Eason’s troubled past. “She’s telling friends he’s not a bad guy. He’s a sweetheart and he makes her so f---ing happy,” a source told Radar Online. “He’s a true Southern gentleman.”

With a criminal past of her own, the MTV reality star isn’t anyone to judge. She has been arrested multiple times and served time in jail. Most recently, she was taken into custody after she allegedly threw a glass Mason jar at Jessica Henry, the girlfriend of her ex-fiancé, Nathan Griffith. The altercation occurred when Griffith arrived to move his belongings out of the MTV star’s house. She became irate when she saw Henry sitting in his truck and allegedly assaulted her.

The mother of two claimed Henry was the one who threw the glass, but authorities didn’t buy her version of events. “I looked and did not observe any redness or any other injury to the arrestee’s back,” the police officer on the scene said. Since the officer observed glass inside Griffith’s truck, he knew Evans wasn’t telling the truth. “This would have made the broken glass somewhere farther in the driveway,” the officer wrote.
