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.

She must not be very smart if she couldn't figure out how to get out of a Georgia Police Station... Or how to steal from WalMart...

Forever Disappointed: Once again, she fails to mention her plans for college, her plans to contribute to society, her plans to help her parents when they get old, her plans to become a role model for her kids...


Sigh.

How do they know she "used one" in the bathroom? Does Walmart have cameras in the ladies room?

OMG...I just noticed something. Both momma and daughter had their booking photos taken at the SAME police station. The white trash fruit doesn't fall far from the Meth tree I see.

She's baaaack    

A stop in the eyebrow pencil aisle may not have been a bad idea either. I thought triangle eyebrows were only cool on Haloween pumpkins.

Sooo.....why doesn't MTV pay these kids decent salaries to be on this show? The people on "Jersey Shore" are each making over $100,000 an episode. And both shows gets tons of ratings and replayed over and over for Mtv to make money from commercial sponsers yet the "16 and pregnant" kids always seem to be broke and just like any other teenagers. What's up with that?
