Jax Taylor was reportedly arrested for felony theft on Friday, after allegedly stealing sunglasses while vacationing in Hawaii.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star has been in Honolulu with girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, with both sharing photos and updates from their trip on social media. At some point on Friday, though, Taylor went into a Honolulu shop and left with a pair of sunglasses he did not pay for. When he returned, police were on the scene and handcuffed him.

It is not known if Taylor unwittingly left the store with the item and went back to return them, or if he did actually indeed to steal them, and then for some odd reason chose to go back to the scene of the crime. Regardless, right now Taylor is facing a felony charge, which mean the sunglasses had to be worth more than $300, reports TMZ. He is currently still behind bars, and Cartwright has not mentioned the incident on Twitter or Instagram.

It’s also not clear if the trip was being filmed for “Vanderpump Rules,” but it seems likely. A number of Taylor’s Bravo co-stars are in Hawaii as well, and he posted a photo of the group a few days ago, writing, “Hiking Kapena falls with the crew. @bravotv #pumprules #Hawaii.” “Vanderpump Rules” was renewed for a fourth season earlier this week, and production has actually been underway since the summer began.

Gossip Cop has reached out to Bravo and Taylor’s reps for comment. We’ll have updates.
