Since leaving the glitzy life of The Hills, Lauren Conrad's former boyfriend Jason Wahler has gotten into plenty of trouble with the law. Now, after his latest arrest for drunk driving on Friday night in Newport, Calif. -- his sixth drinking-related arrest -- Wahler will most likely be spending some time behind bars.
The 23-year-old was picked up on a DUI by police March 19 at 10:54 p.m. while driving a 2008 Chevy Tahoe. According to Newport Beach sargeant Evan Sailor, the reality star was released on his own recognizance later in the evening.
Wahler has reportedly been struggling with alcohol abuse for years and did a stint at an inpatient rehab center in 2007. "I did try drugs, but it was never my thing," he told People that year. "It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out. It's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
"I'm embarrassed as hell, but I really do not remember my arrests," he added. "They're blackouts. And that's scary.
His engagement to college tennis player Katja Decker-Sadowski was called off in 2009.
