The cast of Teen Mom have been embroiled in a child rape scandal as Chelsea Houska's longtime friend Alex Bawek has been arrested for a possible child sex crime.
Bawek, who is married to Houska's pregnant friend Brittnee, was arrested last week and charged with sexual assault of a child under 16 years of age, child enticement and use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.
Law enforcement reportedly responded to a Craiglist posting from a man claiming he wanted a female or couple to have 'some fun with.' The man was later identified as Bawek.
The officer reportedly responded to the ad and posed as a 14-year-old girl. Bawek proceeded to ask the officer, who he believed to be a young child, for nude photographs.
When the officer sent Bawek a picture of an underage girl in a bikini, he asked to pick her up at an apartment building.
Police confronted Bawek at the building, where he claimed he was there to meet a 16 or 17-year-old female. However, he later admitted to agreeing to meet a 14-year-old.
Bawek and his wife Brittnee regularly make appearances on Teen Mom 2. They got married in July 2016 and announced they were expecting their first child in October.
Both Bawek and Brittnee have deactivated all of their social media accounts.
