Tyler Baltierra: My Dad is Back in Jail!

by at .

Well, here's some heartbreaking Teen Mom news for a change ...

(Just kidding, 99% of Teen Mom news is depressing and awful.)

You know Tyler Baltierra and his precious father, Butch?

Their relationship has been tense over the years, to say the least, because of Butch's struggle with drug addiction.

Butch has been in and out of prison for most of Tyler's life, and Tyler's been open about how hard it's been to not have a solid father figure in his life.

Most recently, Butch spent four years in prison on larceny and breaking and entering charges. He was released last August, just in time for Tyler's wedding to Catelynn Lowell.

Since his release, he's been clean and sober and making notable changes in his life. Tyler's said he's proud of his father for the first time in his life, and it's been a delight to see.

Unfortunately, it looks like Tyler might not be so proud anymore.

Friends ... Butch is behind bars. Again.

Cuts like a knife, doesn't it?

Just wait until you hear what Tyler has to say about it.

"I'm so used to it when I hear something like that happen," Tyler said about his father's current whereabouts, "it's just kind of like, 'Here we go again.'"

"It's a little upsetting and unfortunate. Until I get more information on what's going on, I can be mad, really sad or angry."

He added "But for right now ... it's a waiting game to find out why he's in there or what's going to happen. It is what it is."

So this is kind of strange, right? It sounds like Tyler doesn't even know why Butch is in jail again.

But still, he has a pretty good idea.

"This isn't about me," Tyler said, "it's about my dad's personal demons and the way he handles them."

"I went to therapy my whole childhood over this, getting an understanding that he is who he is: he has an addiction."

For what it's worth, while there's been no official comment on Butch's charges, it seems like he could be locked up for a charge of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.

So yeah, it's not great, but it's not meth, you know?

It could definitely be worse.

Hopefully Butch is still sober, and hopefully he can talk to Tyler about everything soon. They've come too far with their relationship to have it all ruined over traffic charges.
