Nathan Griffith addressed the possibility of being in jail at the time of his son's birth on Teen Mom 2.

In a recently released sneak peek at the upcoming second half of Teen Mom 2 season five, Griffith is seen discussing the possible outcome of his DUI trial with his soon-to-be baby mama, Jenelle Evans, and her mother.

“If worst comes to worst, yeah, I’m screwed… If I’m going to be in jail and this baby is born, I won’t be able to handle it,” Griffith told Evans and her mom, Barbara, in a clip posted to Starcasm on July 15. “I [cannot] be away from another one of my [children]. And with Jace, I’m already getting attached to Jace.”

Griffith was arrested in Sept. 2013, with Evans at his side, after cops witnessed him driving erratically on the streets of South Carolina. Griffth was taken into custody just after 2 a.m. on Sept. 7, 2013 for driving under the influence, “resisting arrest,” “driving under suspension,” “speeding in a reduced speed zone,” driving on wrong side of road” and “disobeying a police officer."

On April 9, with filming on Teen Mom 2 underway, Griffith appeared in court, where he was sentenced to serve 30 days behind bars for the DUI. However, on April 20, Griffith was granted an early release.

Two months later, he and Evans welcomed their first child together, son Kaiser.

Teen Mom 2 season 5B premieres tonight, Wed., July 16 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
