Now, the reality star is facing serious jail time after allegedly attacking his girlfriend twice in a two-month span. According to reports, Allen went after his unidentified girlfriend last month, chasing her inside a coffee shop when she tried to run away. When a woman tried to step in, Allen allegedly threw a glass vase at her and vandalized the shop before bystanders took him down.
The D.A.’s office said that he also strangled his significant other in April and at the time, she already had a criminal protective order against Allen for a prior domestic violence conviction. Allen, 24, is being charged with two felony counts of willfully injuring his girlfriend, one felony assault with a deadly weapon, and four misdemeanors related to battery, vandalism, and violating the protective order.
He faces more than 10 years in prison if convicted.
