90 Day Fiance occasional cast member Tyler Nafziger, Nicole Nafziger’s dad, had another run-in with the law. The 52-year-old faced arrest once again, this time, for shoplifting charges. And while Tyler deals with his legal issues, Nicole remains nowhere to be seen. Here’s the latest on the father and daughter duo – and the strange details of his corona-related arrest.
90 Day Fiance: Nicole Nafziger Dad Arrested Again – Fourth Time This Year
Tyler Nafziger, the father of 90 Day Fiance star Nicole Nafziger, was back behind bars last week. The Sarasota police arrested the father of four on Tuesday, May 12. Jail records revealed Tyler was charged with petty theft, a second-degree misdemeanor offense with a bond of $120. He was out of jail the next day, on May 13.
Allegedly, Tyler Nafziger stole two 24 packs of Corona beer from a local store, valued at less than $52. Officers spotted the 90 Day Fiance star’s father near the store but, he didn’t have the beer on him. And he’d changed his clothes from the outfit identified in the store video. But, authorities found his discarded clothes in a garbage bag not far from the scene.
Tyler then confessed but told officers that he “traded the Corona beers for hygiene products”. 90 Day Fiance Nicole’s dad pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial on June 29. So, it sounds like Tyler Nafziger needed some clean-up products during the coronavirus crisis – and ironically, stole Corona beer to trade for what he needed.

As of now, Nicole Nafziger reportedly remains in Morocco with Azan Tefou. This is after the country prolonged its lockdown until May 20.
