Is Jenelle Evans dating another dangerous bad boy?
Just two weeks after the Teen Mom 2 star's mother Barbara claimed that her daughter's ex-fiance, Nathan Griffith, choked her while she was pregnant with their son Kaiser, now 16 months, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that Evans' new boyfriend, David Eason, was accused of choking and threatening an ex-girlfriend.
According to North Carolina's New Hanover county documents obtained by Radar, the 27-year-old father of two was arrested for assaulting a female last year.
The young victim, who will not be named by Radar to protect her privacy, promptly went to police after the terrifying incident, which allegedly occurred on April 19, 2014.
"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****,'" documents state, according to the New Hanover Clerk of Court's office.
A warrant was issued for his arrest, and he was picked up by cops nearly a month later on May 12.
However, he was found not guilty during his court date on July 24.
As Radar previously reported, Eason began serving a five-month prison sentence for prior drug, larceny, and breaking and entering charges on July 30, 2014— just six days after his domestic violence court date.
Despite his criminal past, mother of two Evans, 23, has vehemently defended her new man to friends.
"She's telling friends he's not a bad guy. He's a sweetheart and he makes her so f***ing happy," a source told Radar. "He's a true southern gentleman."
Evans, who also has a history of drug and domestic violence-related arrests, and Wilmington-based welder Eason began dating last month, and have been posting lovey-dovey photos ever since.
