Well, I guess they call them Street Outlaws for a reason!
Thanks to a tip via The Ogle Mole Network, we've learned that Chuck Seitsinger – one of the stars of the hit OKC-based reality show Street Outlaws – was booked into jail this week.
Here's his mug shot:
So, what happened to this bad-boy geriatric Street Outlaw?
Was he caught street racing Farm Truck & AZN on the Shields Bridge with his mustang "Death Trap?" Was he busted being the getaway driver in a daring downtown bank heist?? Was he nabbed by OKCPD while attempting to steal 50 cars in one night in order to save the life of his brother???
No, sadly, he wasn't sent to jail for anything cool. He's there because he pled no contest to charges of placing obscene, threatening, and harassing phone calls, and threatening an act of violence, all to his ex-wife:
Most of the documents related to the case are still not available on OSCN, but according to our Mole, Chuck was given the max penalty of 18 months, with all but 60 days being suspended. He was also ordered 13-weeks of anger management therapy. You can view the entire OSCN file here.
For what it's worth, I guess we shouldn't be too surprised that Chuck is apparently the first OKC Street Outlaw to spend time in the slammer.
Back in 2013, after the show debuted on Discover, I became the first blogger in recorded history to write a detailed review of the show. It quickly became a Google page one search result for "Street Outlaws" and made us public enemy #1 for prepubescent boys, Jiffy Lube sign holders, and other non-college grads from all across the country. You can read some of their hate mail here.
Say what you want, but there's a reason my friends call me Patstradamus.
Chuck has a bunch of other cases on OSCN you can check out if you're bored. In addition to making threats and harassing his ex-wife, he also apparently shared slanderous stuff about her new partner on social media and is facing a libel lawsuit. You can read that one here.
Anyway, we wish Chuck the best of luck living behind bars. Although our criminal justice system is cruel and seems to break people, let's hope this whole thing serves as a big wake-up call for him and he walks out of jail a better and mentally-healthier person.
