Love After Lockup star Dylan Smith‘s latest arrest was three weeks ago — but will he spend New Year’s Eve in the slammer? The court hit Heather Gee’s ex with three charges and schedule a court date for just a few days before Christmas. So, does that mean Dylan was out for the holidays? Here’s the latest update on the WEtv felon.
Love After Lockup: First Court Date for Dylan Smith on December 21
Chicago police picked up Dylan Smith on December 10 initially, and the court set bond at $50,000. The court charged him with possession of a controlled substance, a warrant, and a habitual criminal that’s “armed.”
It’s that last charge that’s a big deal for Dylan of Love After Lockup. It’s the most serious felony, particularly for someone who’s out on parole. As Dylan didn’t bond out, he spent the 11 days between his arrest and first day in court in a Chicago-area jail.
But what happened at the late-December hearing? Did someone pay Dylan’s bond so he could be home for Christmas? The answer is no. Dylan Smith was still in the slammer when Santa Claus was dropping off gifts. And it looks like Dylan was definitely on the naughty list.
