Whitney Purvis mug shot -- she was arrested in Georgia yesterday
"16 and Pregnant" star Whitney Purvis was arrested in Georgia yesterday ... after cops say she  shoplifted a pregnancy test from a local Walmart ... and used it in the store.

According to the police report, the 20-year-old MTV star stashed a First Response pregnancy test in a hooded jacket ... and then "took it to the restroom with her and used one."

Purvis allegedly tried to sneak out of the store through a side door ... but she was busted by store security ... who put her under citizens arrest and called local police.

According to the report, the pregnancy test was valued at $15.98.

Purvis was hauled to a nearby police station where she was booked for misdemeanor theft by shoplifting.

Purvis was featured on the MTV show in 2009. Her mother was busted for meth in Georgia last year.

Too bad she didn't steal condoms. Idiot, next time steal some books and get an education. Because despite what MTV, Snooki, and the others try to tell you, BEING A WHORE ISN'T A REAL JOB. Unless you want to be promted from prison to the graveyard.

Wal-mart is evil, and shopping there is basically tacit support of destroying every small business in your town. That said, she is trashy, it seems, but I guess less trashy than people who actually give their $$ to Wal-mart...maybe. Stealing is evil, Wal-mart (and supporting it) certainly's all a slippery slope.
