TLC’s Unexpected star Max Schenzel faces an auto theft charge after his latest arrest. Max is no stranger when it comes to trouble with the law. In the past, he was caught using a credit card that wasn’t his. Now, he’s dealing with another legal issue for using a car that’s not his. Will he avoid prison for the latest charges?
TLC’s Unexpected News: Max Schenzel in Trouble Again
Max Schenzel from TLC’s Unexpected was arrested and charged with stealing a vehicle earlier this month. He was caught by police after allegedly leaving a car reported as stolen. According to reports, he made it hard for the cops to detain him.
While trying to be put into handcuffs, the Unexpected reality celeb reportedly tried to kick an officer. However, once in custody, police found the keys to the allegedly stolen vehicle in his pocket. But, Max denied taking the keys and said someone probably put them in his pocket.
This isn’t the first incident where the Unexpected young father was charged for theft. Max Schenzel’s previous arrests accused him of stealing a friend’s grandmother’s bank card. Max was accused of making purchases without the permission of the cardholder. His then-girlfriend, Chloe Mendoza, seemingly stuck by his side. But, she may not be around anymore.
TLC Alum Max Schenzel Dealing with Additional Charges
Max Schenzel’s previous poor behavior didn’t sit well with his probation officer. Last month, he had his probation revoked. His PO felt like he wasn’t following his terms. So, there was a warrant out for the Unexpected father. Max did eventually turn himself in.
Now the Unexpected cast member will face even more problems. Max Schenzel originally got four new charges. They included resisting arrest, aggravated assault on an officer, theft and unlawful use of means of transportation. However, the only one that was on file was for unlawful use of means of transportation. Once again he got lucky.
Unexpected Celeb Could Face Longer Sentencing
Max Schenzel already had the possibility of a jail sentence from previous cases. He could have spent 90 days locked up after pleading guilty for spending money that wasn’t his. Max has been able to escape spending any time in prison so far. However, with this latest incident added to his case, he could be serving way more than three months.
The Unexpected alum has been lucky so far. He hasn’t gone to jail. Although, he did go to a rehab facility. Max Schenzel spent time in rehab trying to kick his drug addiction. But, his law troubles didn’t end once he left the treatment center. He was still misbehaving. Max could spend a year and a half behind bars for this newest charge.
Max Schezenl said that he and Chloe Mendoza are not together at the moment. Yet, he thinks that they will eventually get back together. But, after his latest run-in with the police, the chances of that happening soon may be slim.
