Griffith, 30, was arrested on February 25, 2018 for striking fixtures while driving on a highway. His girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt previously told Radar of the arrest, "Nathan ran out to get an energy drink alone. He was arrested for pulling away from a gas pump with the pump still in his truck's tank. It was an accident."
The clerk of court for Myrtle Beach Municipal Court exclusively told Radar that while the case was closed in April, a motion was filed to reopen the case on June 1, 2018.
Griffith's attorney requested a jury trial. "A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 2019," the clerk told Radar. "Prosecutors are going to see if they could work a deal out before it goes to trial."
The legal trouble comes amid Griffith's custody battle with Evans over their son Kaiser, 4. On last night's episode, he explained how now that the charges have been dismissed from his December 2016 arrest for domestic violence in the 2nd degree against ex-girlfriend Jessica Henry, he is going to fight for full custody. Radar has confirmed the charges have been dismissed.
Earlier this month, Griffith and his mom Doris Davidson, who has custody of Kaiser for her son, refused to return the 4-year-old after noticing bruises on his butt. He called police to report the abuse on Friday, June 29 and Sunday, July 1. After a Child Protective Services and Department of Social Services investigation, Griffith and Davidson were forced to return Kaiser to Evans and her husband David Eason on July 3.
The custody battle started in September 2017 when Davidson filed an emergency request for full custody of Kaiser. She accused Evans of testing positive for marijuana at the time of her daughter Ensley's birth in 2017. She also accused the couple of neglect and abuse.
