Whitney Purvis Arrested

Uh oh! A ’16 & Pregnant’ star was caught red-handed stealing (and using) a pregnancy test at her local Walmart!

Police say 16 & Pregnant star Whitney Purvis, who appeared on the first season of the MTV show, was arrested because she nabbed a First Response pregnancy test from a Georgia Walmart and “took it to the restroom with her and used one,” according to TMZ.

Wearing a hooded jacket, the 20-year-old allegedly tried sneaking out through a side door. Store security caught her and put her under Citizen’s arrest until local police arrived.

She was booked for misdemeanor theft for stealing the $15.98 pregnancy test.

Yikes! Do you think Whitney’s antics will get her a spot on the new Teen Mom 3?
