Seriously, 'Teen Mom' has had a lot of arrests.

Now it's not really a stretch to imagine that a series centered on a bunch of people entering parenthood before they're emotionally, financially, physically, and mentally read to do so will see a whole bunch of other unwise life choices being made.

You know, the kinds of choices that culminate in getting taken into police custody. Several cast members, from moms to family members to baby daddies, were locked up. Here are some of the most notable entries.
