 Jenelle Evans, from Teen Mom 2, had been in the car with Nathan throughout the incident, but she was not arrested, various websites reported.

 Griffith and his girlfriend, Jennelle Evans from Teen Mom 2, the next day took Jace, Jennelle's toddler son, to a water park, Radar Online reported.

 Jenelle, age 21, was living in Brunswick County, but recently has been spotted out at various clubs in Horry County many times.

 The DUI incident began when police say that Griffith, driving a 2007 Toyota, was going 11 mph over the 40 mph speed limit, so the officer followed the Toyota, which turned on Belle Park.

 The driver pulled into a driveway at 800 Dargan Street and then immediately ran from the car, police said.

 Eventually police caught up and threw Griffith on the ground and handcuffed him, but he was Tasered during the incident, police said.

 Later, Griffith was put in the back seat of a police car and "the subject vomited in the rear seat" of a patrol car, police said.

 Police searched the Toyota and said they found 12 white pills, but they were later determined not to be narcotics, police said.

 Griffith was charged with resisting arrest, speeding in a reduced speed zone, driving on wrong side of road, disobeying a police officer, driving under suspension, license not suspended for DUI - 3rd or sub. Offense and driving under the influence - 3rd offense.

 He was held in J. Reuben Detention Center on a $5000 bond.  Jenelle bailed Griffith out of jail, Radar Online reported.

 Jenelle and Nathan have been seeing each other for the past three months, despite the fact that she is still married to Courtland Rogers.

 Griffith was a professional fighter before working at the Wyndham Hotel in Myrtle Beach.

But, recently, he has been accepted to start fighting in the Mix Martial Arts league, according to Tweets from Jenelle.
