LITTLE People, Big World star Caryn Chandler’s troubled son Connor is going to trial after his arrest for “harassing” his famous mother.
In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, Connor, 21, has a six-person jury trial set for June 23, 2021.
Caryn Chandler’s son Connor is headed to trial in his harassment case
Connor was arrested for harassment against his famous mother Caryn in January 2020
Connor pleaded not guilty to two counts of harassment at his arraignment.
As The Sun previously reported, Connor was arrested on January 11, 2020 and held on $10,000 bond.
Connor “did unlawfully and intentionally harass or annoy” Caryn by subjecting her to “offensive physical contact,” the court papers read.
Connor was arrested twice since January for failing to appear for court hearings
As part of his release agreement, he was ordered to have no contact with his mother, her family, co-defendants or witnesses.
Connor was also ordered to not go within 100 feet of Caryn’s residence, work, vehicle or person.
In August 2020, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to appear to his settlement conference.
He was arrested on August 28 and released the same day.
In one arrest, he was busted while ‘partying’ at a motel with friends
The Oregon police department that handled the arrest told The Sun he was busted while “partying” at a motel.
The spokesperson for the department said: “When we arrested him, he was checked into a motel. The front desk called stating the tenants were disruptive.
“They were partying it sounds like. They were going in the lobby and were filming the front desk staff. They were asked to leave.
“There were a lot of people in the motel room. When we showed up we ran everyone and he was in the room. He was arrested on the warrant.”
Caryn is also mom to daughter Brittany
Connor exclusively told The Sun in October of the August arrest: “I woke up to cops, I guess some random kids that showed up were giving the staff a hard time, I barely remember.
“They were pulling everyone out the room because some kids got us kicked out. Drunk, obnoxious, loud random kids, that’s what happened.
“I gave them my name and they told me I had a warrant, I was so confused. They sent mail to the wrong address I’m legally not even allowed at, stating my court date changed, so I didn’t even know I had a warrant at the time.
“The charges should have been dropped last month.”
Connor has battled with drug addiction through the years
Then a warrant was issued for Connor’s arrest after he missed his November 23 court hearing for a status check.
Connor turned himself in on November 30 after he was hit the warrant for failing to appear in court.
In 2018, Connor revealed he is sober after a battle with drug addiction over Facebook.
He previously told The Sun of his substance abuse battle: “I was just another kid that partied in high school and one day after a party I had some Xanax left over, I took it.
Connor told The Sun last year that he is sober
“[I] realized how I felt and it kinda just snowballed from there. I didn’t want to stop, I didn’t see a reason to stop because I was high 24/7 off it.
“I thought everyone was [the] enemy so I denied any help offered which just led to my addiction taking away everything important I had in my life.
“Rehab never helped, I ended up getting clean after I turned 18 and on my own, once I was off probation. It just happened, one day I was done, tired of living that life.
“I have friends that aren’t here anymore because of pills, and I know it could have been different if they had gotten the right help the first time.”
Caryn is the girlfriend of Matt Roloff
He added that addiction “took over” his life.
Connor continued: “I’m glad it happened when I was a kid, that’s what I can say, I was able to really learn before I truly started my future. I’m a good kid.
“I don’t steal, I don’t do drugs. I have good relationships with my family and friends, I go out on the weekend and work during the week like every other person.”
Caryn is also mom to daughter Brittany, 24.
Matt and Caryn have talked about marriage
The Sun previously reported Matt and Caryn have been “talking about marriage.”
The source told The Sun: “Caryn said they’ve talked about marriage but she thinks Matt wouldn’t drop any hints of a proposal, it would be a huge surprise.
“They are very much in love and it will happen soon, they have been planning for the future for a while now.
Caryn would like a televised wedding
“Caryn is the type to go with the flow, so she’s not going to continuously talk about it, but she would absolutely say yes.
“The wedding would be a huge family affair, but Amy would not be invited. That’s a big fat no, Caryn seriously dislikes her.
“But it would be an unforgettable day, Caryn goes all out and she’d want an extravagant wedding, and Matt likes to spend money so there shouldn’t be a problem there.”
The source added: “She’s been married once before but being with Matt and being on the show, it would have to be a blow out day.
