Another MTV reality star spent some time in handcuffs last week: Teen Mom 2 star Jonathan "Jo" Rivera, father to Kailyn Lowry's son, Isaac.

Last Wednesday, cops in Lopatcong Township, N.J., pulled over Jonathan, 19 and his brother Edward, 23, when they noticed sparks coming from the undercarriage of their car; both young men were arrested for being under the influence of marijuana.

According to Lehigh Valley Live, Jonathan mentioned to cops that he was a star of Teen Mom 2-- but stopped short of using his TV fame to get out of the arrest.

His elder brother was also charged with driving under the influence of marijuana, driving with a suspended license and driving an unsafe vehicle.

Despite splitting up, Rivera and Lowry continued to live under the same roof with his parents as they cared for their son, 12 months.

"Our relationship was really immature, and I don't think either of us knew what we wanted. We tried to make things work, but I held a grudge against him for going out all the time when I was pregnant," Lowry told UsMagazine.com. "He blames me for us not being together, but I think it's just so many reasons. He's a good dad, though. He is patient with Isaac."
