EXCLUSIVE! Bar Smith Gets Additional Felony Charge Added to Existing Charges; His Mom Shen Williams Clarifies His “Kidnapping” Charge

Bar Smith faced a judge in a Nevada courtroom on Monday…and it did not go well for the Teen Mom star.

When you’ve got three felony charges (and four eyebrows)…

The Ashley can exclusively reveal that Bar was hit with an additional felony charge that was added to his already extensive list of charges from an incident that occurred on July 7. As The Ashley previously reported, the baby daddy of Ashley Jones was arrested in Henderson, Nevada, on the date and has been behind bars ever since. (As ‘Teen Mom’ fans know, Ashley and Holly– the daughter she shares with Bar— currently live near Las Vegas, while Bar resides in California and is on probation. Ashley and Bar had been living in separate states and split a while back.)

The Ashley can confirm that, on Tuesday, the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter dad was charged with “Residential Burglary Constituting Domestic Violence,” which is a felony. (It appears that this charge is given in Nevada if the defendant entered a dwelling with the intent to commit domestic violence.)

Bar was already facing a felony second-degree kidnapping charge, as well as a felony charge of “Coercion Domestic Violence with the Threat Of or Using Physical Force.” Bar was also given a misdemeanor charge for Harassment, and was cited for owing at least $5,000 in child support.

The Ashley can confirm that a criminal complaint for the new Residential Burglary charge was filed on Tuesday, and Bar is set to go before a judge on Wednesday for a Felony Arraignment for that new charge. 

So there’s that…

Bar’s previous charges were handled at Monday’s hearing, where he was given a public defender who helped him have his bail set at $35,000, on the condition that Bar stay away from the alleged victim if he’s let out of jail. When he’s released, Bar will also be placed on Level 4 Pre-Trial Compliance Unit monitoring, which is the highest level offered in Nevada. (Interestingly, Bar’s Teen Mom 2 co-star Nathan “Why Am I A Guy?” Griffith is also on Level 4 PCU monitoring in Nevada.)

 “We’ll have the same ankle monitor, Bar! Welcome to the chain gang!”

Anyway, Bar remains behind bars in Nevada as of press time. 

After news of Bar’s arrest circulated The Interwebs, Bar’s mom Shen Williams posted a series of comments on a “Teen Mom Fans” Facebook page’s post about Bar’s charges. She denied that the person whom Bar allegedly kidnapped was his daughter, Holly, as some fans had been speculating.

“All I can say he definitely did not kidnap Holly,” Shen wrote on Tuesday. 

“You ain’t using it while you’re in the pokey, son! Let your mama look fashionable!”

“…I’m not sure on all that happened but he definitely did not kidnap Holly,” Shen told another person in post’s comment section. “We will make public statement soon. I’m gathering details [about] what happened. Since it’s [an] open [case] I won’t hurt the situation.”

The Ashley is working on getting more info regarding Bar’s charges and case, and will update when more information is available.
