Former ANTM contestant Renee Alway at the Fox Reality Channel Really Awards

Renee Alway–from Cycle 8 of America’s Next Top Model–was recently arrested for burglary in Palm Springs following a six hour standoff with police. Per TMZ:

It’s a crazy story … Renee — who placed 3rd in Cycle 8 of the show — was popped on June 28 in Palm Springs and slapped with A TON of charges, including suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills, and committing a felony while on bail* … just to name a few.

Here’s what happened … Palm Springs PD says they got a call about a suspicious female lurking around a house that was supposed to be vacant. They responded and allegedly found Alway hiding in the garage with a gun.

Cops say they believed another person was also in the house — a male, also packing heat — and called in the SWAT team. SWAT entered and searched the home for hours, but concluded no one else was inside.

Alway is due to appear in court next week. Also of note, she’d already been arrested early last month for possession.

And while, yes, her fellow ANTM alum Jael Strauss had publicly struggled with meth addiction last year, let’s remember that, with 20 cycles and 10-14 contestants each one, there was bound to be some post-show revelations and personal problems.
