‘16 and Pregnant’ star Whitney Purvis arrested for smashing computers

By Daniel S Levine,

Whitney Purvis and her boyfriend, Weston Gosa, stars from MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, were arrested this week for allegedly smashing computers and other electronics.

The Floyd County, Georgia Sheriff’s Department told TMZ that Purvis, 21, and Gosa, 23, were arrested Wednesday for allegedly breaking a laptop and a cell phone, according to a complaint. An arrest warrant was issued and the two were booked on criminal trespassing.

They were arrested at their home. They were later released on a $1,300 bond each.

Gosa is the father of Purvis’ child and it isn’t clear who was taking care of the child while the couple was at the police station.

According to Hollywood Life, this is the second run-in with the law for Purvis this year. She was arrested in March when she stole a pregnancy test from a Wal-mart. She was caught on a security camera and tried to escape out a side door.

Her mother, April Purvis, has also had multiple run-ins with the law. In June 2011, April was arrested for marijuana and meth possession. “What my mom does, does not effect me,” Purvis told TMZ at the time. “I do not want my son to grow up how I did.” She said she is “nothing like” her parents.
