Teen Mom star Tyler Baltierra's troubled dad Butch 'INCARCERATED' in jail for 'OUI' weeks after pleading guilty

TEEN Mom star Tyler Baltierra's troubled dad Butch is back behind bars after being booked for 'OUI' and pleading guilty weeks earlier.

The MTV star's father has been open about his addiction battle, even attending rehab on the show.

On Friday, The Ashleys Reality Roundup confirmed that Butch – real name Darl – entered jail in Michigan.

He will serve a sentence for allegedly committing a third OUI – Operating Under the Influence.

The charge stems from a 2020 incident, which Butch plead guilty to in March of this year.

County records obtained by the outlet revealed that the reality star's dad was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time of his arrest.

As previously reported by The Sun, Butch was arrested on March 4, 2020.

He was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, open container, and driving with a license suspended in Michigan.

The Sun exclusively revealed that the 59-year-old accepted a plea deal in the case.

In exchange for his guilty plea for driving under the influence of alcohol, the driving with a license suspended, and open container charges were dropped.

Court papers obtained by The Sun revealed that Tyler’s dad will have to undergo screening and assessment to determine if he will “benefit from rehabilitative services.”

He was sentenced on May 4.


A police report obtained by The Sun revealed that an officer observed a white Ford van at 5:30pm swerving and accelerating heavily. 

When the police officer made contact with Butch, he appeared “confused” and claimed he was unfamiliar with the area. 

Butch alleged that he was driving a friend’s van and he was using the vehicle for work. 

He told the officer that he had only been in Michigan for a few weeks, decidedly omitting that he used to live there. 

The police report stated: “As I spoke to him it appeared that he had watery, bloodshot eyes.”

The officer told Butch he would be placed under arrest for his suspended license and a bench warrant. 

The police report alleged that he “hesitated” getting out of the van and “started moving things.”

When Butch finally complied after being “ordered” out of the van, the officer “smelled a faint odor of intoxicants from his person.” 

The cop’s narrative went on: “I looked into the car and observed a spilled drink (later discovered to smell of mixed alcoholic drink) and scattered ice cubes behind the passenger seat. 

"The spray pattern of the drink appeared as if it had been cast from the driver seat. There was also a moderate odor of intoxicants coming from the driver seat area.”


Butch reportedly refused a breathalyzer but did agree to field sobriety tests. 

A pocket knife was confiscated from him amid the arrest. 

While in booking, Butch again refused a breathalyzer and blood test, as officers issued a warrant for the seizure of his blood.

According to the report, the results revealed he had 0.041 grams per 100 millimeters of alcohol. 

THC, amphetamine, and desmethyldiazepam were also detected.

In Butch’s mugshot, obtained by The Sun, he appeared somewhat disheveled and had bloodshot and seemingly watery eyes. 

Butch posted a $5,000 personal bond. 

On November 10, 2021, he entered a plea of not guilty. 

The prosecutor on the case filed a “noticed to seek sentence enhancement,” according to court papers, because of his past home invasion conviction in 2001, and breaking and entering a building with the intent to commit larceny convictions in 2002 and 2006. 

At the time, Butch was thought to be facing one to five years for operating under the influence of alcohol, one year for driving with license suspended, and 90 days for open container, plus fines, community service, and/or substance abuse screening. 

The legal troubles didn't stop their either.


The Ashley’s Reality Roundup previously reported that a few short months after the arrest, Butch was caught again in Michigan on June 9, 2020.

He was charged with hindering and pleaded guilty. 

He was ordered to pay fines and the case was closed in December 2020. 

The father of two has struggled with addiction for several decades, as he moved from Michigan to Texas to enter a rehab facility. 


In 2019, Catelynn Lowell’s husband, Tyler, 30, revealed on Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry’s podcast Coffee Convos that his dad had relapsed.

“We go back to square one, do this relapse thing, and kind of ride this train out and see what happens.”
