Not long after the world learned that Jenelle Evans has a new boyfriend, it came out that David Eason has been arrested a number of times.

Most of the charges were fairly minor, but a few (breaking and entering, larceny) go beyond the realm of petty crime.

What might be even more troubling than the number of Eason’s brushes with the law is how recently some of his arrests took place.

The 27-year-old welder served four months behind bars earlier this year, and now, Radar Online is reporting that Eason was accused of domestic violence by the woman he dated just before Jenelle.

“The Defendant did assault [redacted], a female person, by grabbing the victim around the throat and saying to the victim, ‘I will kill you b-tch,’” read court documents obtained by Radar.

Though he was eventually found not guilty, it’s somewhat suspicious that Eason chose to evade police for nearly a year after a warrant for his arrest was issued, rather than simply turn himself in and give his side of the story.

It’s certainly the most troubling revelation about Eason so far, but sources say Jenelle continues to defend the unstable new man in her life.

“She’s telling friends he’s not a bad guy. He’s a sweetheart and he makes her so f–king happy,” a source told Radar. “He’s a true southern gentleman.”

Those words might be comforting, were it not for Jenelle’s history of choosing horrendous boyfriends and even worse stepfather material.
