90 Day Fiance cast member Jay Smith‘s mugshot and initial police arrest report are out with details on what happened. Ashley Martson has fast-tracked his deportation by reporting him for violating a PFA (Protection From Abuse) order. As we reported earlier today, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania police arrested Jay Smith. He was taken to Cumberland County jail but then things got more serious. Now, he’s in federal custody and looks to be deported very soon. Now, Jay’s mugshot is out and details of the July 3 arrest that started the ball rolling to send him back to Jamaica.
90 Day Fiance Jay Smith Mugshot and Arrest Details
You can see Jay Smith’s mugshot above. The police report says Jay was picked up in Camp Hill, PA. It’s located between Mechanicsburg where Ashley Martson lives and Harrisburg, PA. According to the official statement, Ashley reported Jay on July 2 for the PFA violation. The police investigated then arrested him today. This was about Jay posting on Instagram that he would expose Ashley’s dirty secrets and the PFA couldn’t stop him.
Ashley Martson saw the Insta post and called the police, according to the latest intel on this real-life 90 Day Fiance drama. The police document says the social media post “was a violation of the order”. So they looked into the matter then the cops said “an arrest warrant was obtained for Smith”. The arrest happened today on July 3.

Police took into custody Jay Smith noting they picked him up “without incident”. Cops dropped Jay at Cumberland County Prison for processing and intake. It also said there would be a hearing “at a later date” but now that seems increasingly unlikely. Jay didn’t stay long at the Cumberland jail and before noon today, he was off the inmate roster.
Then, as Soap Dirt reported in an update, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) picked up the 90 Day Fiance star and transferred him to York County Prison. This is where ICE warehouses people that are classified as “immigration detainees”. Since Ashley Martson never filed the change of status to get Jay Smith his green card, he’s technically an illegal immigrant, as she reported to police.

In the most recent episode of Happily Ever After, you can see in the clip above that it’s Ashley Martson physically attacking Jay on camera. You can watch the whole confrontation above, or skip to the 1:35 mark to see where Ashley puts her hands on him aggressively and her friend joins in at one point. This is older footage, but still could be evidence for Jay Smith’s side of the matter.
After all, an abused spouse can get a visa without their husband or wife consenting. So, maybe 90 Day Fiance Jay Smith’s lawyer (if he has one) can fight for a Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) exception. The law specifies women. But an abused husband might be able to try for the green card exception. Otherwise, it seems like Jay might be on a flight back to Jamaica.
Meanwhile, fans turned on Ashley Martson on social media. Her repeatedly calling the police on Jay Smith outraged many viewers. Tweets and Grams calling her racist and a host of other derogatory terms are piling up even now.
