TEEN Mom star Tyler Baltierra’s troubled dad Butch has been released from jail after serving a nearly month-long DUI sentence.

A spokesperson for the Oakland County Jail in Michigan confirmed exclusively to The Sun that Butch was released on June 24 at midnight. 


The arrest came after The Sun previously reported Butch, whose real name is Darl, was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, open container and driving with license suspended in Michigan on March 4, 2020.

Butch accepted a plea deal in the case. 

He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol. 

The driving with license suspended and open container charges were dismissed.

In the police report from the March 2020 arrest obtained by The Sun, an officer observed a white Ford van at 5:30pm swerving and accelerating heavily. 

When the police officer made contact with Butch, he appeared “confused” and told him he was not familiar with the area. 

Butch claimed he was driving a friend’s van and he was using the vehicle for work. 

The MTV star told the officer that he had only been in Michigan for a couple of weeks and did not reveal that he used to live there. 

The police report read: “As I spoke to him it appeared that he had watery, bloodshot eyes.”

The officer told Butch he will be placed under arrest for his suspended license and a bench warrant. 

The police report claimed he “hesitated” getting out of the van and “started moving things.”

When Butch complied after being “ordered” out of the van, the officer “smelled a faint odor of intoxicants from his person.” 

The cop’s narrative continued: “I looked into the car and observed a spilled drink (later discovered to smell of mixed alcoholic drink) and scattered ice cubes behind the passenger seat. 

"The spray pattern of the drink appeared as if it had been cast from the driver seat. There was also a moderate odor of intoxicants coming from the driver seat area.”

Butch refused a breathalyzer, but agreed to field sobriety tests. 

A pocket knife was confiscated from Butch. 

While in booking, Butch again refused a breathalyzer and blood test, as officers issued a warrant for the seizure of his blood.

According to the report, the results revealed he had 0.041 grams per 100 millimeters of alcohol. 

Also detected were THC, amphetamine and desmethyldiazepam.

In Butch’s mugshot obtained by The Sun, he appeared disheveled, and had bloodshot and watery eyes. 

Butch posted a $5,000 personal bond. 


The Ashley’s Reality Roundup previously reported that just months after the arrest, Butch was arrested again in Michigan on June 9, 2020.

He was charged with hindering and Butch pleaded guilty. 

He was ordered to pay fines and the case was closed in December 2020. 

The father of two has struggled with addiction for decades, as he moved from Michigan to Texas to enter a rehab facility. 


In 2019, Catelynn Lowell’s husband, Tyler, 30, revealed on Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry’s podcast Coffee Convos that his dad had relapsed. 

He said: “He’s in the middle of a relapse right now. That’s the reality of that situation right now.

“We go back to square one, do this relapse thing and kind of ride this train out and see what happens.”
