90 Day Fiance: Ashley Martson Could Find Herself in Lockup
AfterBuzz TV reported that Ashley Martson has a preliminary hearing on August 28. She was charged with criminal mischief and simple assault. Generally, the outcome for criminal mischief is a fine and restitution. However, AfterBuzz TV had an exclusive interview with the West Shore regional Police Chief and reported that the 90 Day Fiance alum could face up to two years behind bars and a $5,000 fine for the simple assault charge.
Ashley admitted later she was drinking at the time of the incident. Not only did the fire extinguisher come crashing through Jay Smith’s window, it also hit his friend in the head in the process. When the police arrived, Ashely tried to have Jay arrested. Jay’s friend may have something to say about the incident if they call him in. He may want to make the most of what happened to him and get back at the 90 Day Fiance star.
90 Day Fiance: Jay Smith Arrest Overshadowing Ashley’s?
Much of the focus shifted to Jay Smith being in ICE custody since the fire extinguisher incident happened. But, it seems Ashley isn’t in the clear on her own charge. There was talk of Ashley Martson checking into a wellness facility following the incident to help with her depression. Since that time, she seems to have picked up right where she left off.
Meanwhile, her arrest took a backseat when Jay Smith was picked up by Cumberland County police and later detained by ICE. A war of words broke out online as Jay Smith’s sister Ornella Raine “Poochie” Smith served up some hot tea on his estranged former lover. Ashley Martson has been updating her IG with vacation pictures and seems to be carrying on with her life. But, she’s definitely not in the clear yet.
In addition, Ashley Martson recently took to Instagram to announce she was leaving 90 Day Fiance for good. It’ll be interesting to see how these legal woes may impact her post-TLC life moving forward.
What’s Next for Ashley?
AfterBuzz TV notes Ashley Martson was booked on Monday, July 22 on simple assault and criminal mischief charges. She attempted to make light of the situation. She said on social media that she “felt cute” and decided to take a mugshot. Ashley concluded by saying she wouldn’t throw any more fire extinguishers.
It seems Ashley Martson is doing what she can to downplay her assault charge. But, depending on the outcome of her upcoming hearing, it may not be a laughing matter once the judge issues a final ruling. 90 Day Fiance fans will want to stay tuned to see how everything goes down. Will Ashley be the one behind bars when it’s all said and done?
