Purvis was arrested yesterday after allegedly stealing a… wait for it… pregnancy test from her local Walmart. As Jezebel reports, the 20-year-old hid a First Response in her hoodie and used it in the store’s restroom. She reportedly tried to sneak out of the store but was busted by security.
Purvis was arrested on charges of misdemeanor shoplifting.
Whitney appeared in the first season of the MTV series, which showcased both the teen and her mom pregnant at the same time. Soon after her son Weston was born she moved in with her boyfriend, also named Weston, but the couple have since broken up.
