The Bachelor: Brad Womack Has Criminal Record

January 20, 2011 07:00 AM by Paula_Kosowski


“Bachelor” Brad Womack has broken a lot of hearts on ABC’s reality dating show The Bachelor, but what many people don’t know is he’s also broken the law. The current “Bachelor” has a criminal record. Keep reading to see how he got in trouble…

“Bachelor” Brad Womack can now add “bad boy” to his name. According to Radar Online, Texas court documents reveal 38-year-old bar owner Womack’s criminal past.

Radar Online reports the “Bachelor” was arrested in 1993 for having a forged driver’s license, which classifies as a felony. Womack was also caught for passing a bad check and public intoxication, according to the website.

Radar Online says ABC producers won’t comment on the scandal. The website speculates producers may have missed the convictions while researching Womack since the “Bachelor” was going by his stepfather’s last name Pickelsimer at the time.

The Texas Department of Public Safety in Austin has Womack’s updated November 2009 photo on file for monitoring the state’s criminal convictions, Radar Online reports.

Womack has been described as a changed man on the new season of “The Bachelor.” We’ll see if he addresses his past troubles with the law as part of the redemption-themed season.

Womack got a second chance to go back on “The Bachelor” and find love after notoriously dumping two final contestants, DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft, in season 11′s dramatic finale. This time around Womack says he will make a decision at the last rose ceremony.

We’ll keep you updated on all the drama along the way. Do you think Womack should come clean about his past?

The current season of “The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8/7 c on ABC.

    Honestly, it was almost 20 years ago. People change, and I don’t consider this much of a “scandal.” It was quite a long time ago. He made mistakes, he’s moved on. So should the people who consider this a scandal.

    If he had a felony he could not be a bar owner. It was probably all dropped. He is on the bachelor not a politician. Get over it. Like Shelby says, it was almost 20 years ago. Like we all have not made mistakes????

    Screw this guy! He wants comes across as a great person. He is a selfish jerk. User, liar…etc. No wonder he is still NOT married at 38 in Austin, Texas. What goes around in this lifetime goes around.

    I like watching the bachelor because bottom line is: it is not real life. Who wants to admit that “real love” is found in the midst of struggle and commitment. Was Brad a criminal? Probably – he tells every girl he is “falling in love with them.” I would fall in love too in the midst of paradise, lots of wine and everything I could hope for without a price tag attached!
