WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - David Eason, who appeared on MTV’s Teen Mom 2, has been charged with two misdemeanors after forcefully towing a 73-year-old man’s truck and then posting a video of the offense on YouTube.

The video was posted last week in late December, but the crime happened in June. The victim, Terry Hill, spoke exclusively with WECT about the damage to his truck and what made him decide to press charges.

The two charges that Eason faces are injuring or tampering with vehicle, and injury to personal property less than $200. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 28.

The police description confirms that Eason placed a winch cable on the victim’s truck and pulled, causing some damage to the transmission.

The criminal summons was issued on December 23, 2018.

Hill told WECT he had to repair the truck’s transmission after the incident.

A Class 2 misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
