“16 and Pregnant” star Whitney Purvis was arrested in Rome, Georgia Thursday for allegedly shoplifting… a pregnancy test.

Purvis, who appeared on the MTV show’s first season, reportedly took a First Response pregnancy test off a Walmart shelf and then used the test in the store’s bathroom.

She was busted by Walmart security when she attempted to leave through a side exit.

An official from the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department tells Gossip Cop the former reality star, now 20, was booked by Rome City police for misdemeanor theft by shoplifting and is still sitting in a jail cell.
