americas next top model renee alway arrested swat gi 'America's Next Top Model' alum Renee Alway arrested

The SWAT team was called in during the arrest of “America’s Top Model” alum Renee Alway. The Cycle 8 contestant was arrested by Palm Springs police on June 28.

As first reported by TMZ on Saturday (July 13), police were called to a supposedly vacant house where a women had been spotted lurking in a suspicious manner. Upon arrival, they found Alway hiding in a garage with a gun.

The SWAT team got called in because police believed that there was another person in the house — a man with a gun. Eventually, however, it was determined that the house was empty.

Alway was arrested on the scene and charged with burglary, fraud, narcotics possession, forged bills and committing a felony while on bail. The final charge stems from Alway’s June 2 arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia, theft and fraud. Known best for her “ANTM” appearance — Alway placed third in the Cycle 8 competition — this latest arrest marks the model’s third in 2013.

The model is due in court in the upcoming week but remains in jail at this time.
