The booking information does not clarify which state held a warrant for Bar Smith’s arrest. MTV fans, however, know that Bar’s family recently packed up and left California. They moved to Nevada. Being held without bond in Nevada as a fugitive in another state, multiple outlets are assuming California is the state where the warrant originated.
Just 48 hours after being arrested as a fugitive from justice, the TV personality had an extradition hearing. Bar Smith was at the hearing. Documents confirm he legally represented himself. Bar Smith was denied bail. So, he will remain an inmate at Henderson Detention Center until September 13th. His next hearing is slated for September 13th.
A look at his criminal history
As Ashley’s Reality Roundup reminds us, Bar Smith was arrested back in May of 2021. He was also charged with a felony for “willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent manner.” Presently, the case is still pending. February of this year is the last dated hearing related to this case. It is possible this case is related to his current situation, but the details of his current incarceration are unclear.
Learning Ashley Jones’ husband Bar Smith is behind bars is a huge shock to some as he’s been working hard to turn his life around. For example, fans learned Bar went to rehab prior to moving to Nevada. The details of his rehab stint are slated to be covered during the next season of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. The next season is also reportedly going to cover Ashley, Bar, and their daughter moving from California to Nevada.
