He was hit with one ticket for suspended vehicle registration and a second for not having proof of insurance.
Ethan was ordered to pay a $250 fine for each ticket.
On October 9, 2018, the TLC star was ticketed for speeding 69 mph in a 55 mph zone, and was ordered to pay a $150 fine.
Ethan’s traffic woes come as he and Olivia announced their separation on October 27, 2023, after five years of marriage.
Each of the Welcome to Plathville stars shared their statements on Instagram.
“Ethan and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Olivia said.
“I have conflicting memories of when we were 18, dreaming of eternal innocence – but the partner you choose is a reflection of the world you want to live in, and at 18 I didn’t know who I was or what kind of life I wanted to make for myself.”
Ethan and Olivia married in October 2018, and their commitment at such a young age shocked their families.
Olivia continued in her post, explaining: “There were good moments and I want to remember and honor them.
“We fell in love as children, and then we parted as adults; we became wiser, older, and braver.”
“It just didn’t work”
“It didn’t work out between us, even though God knows we gave it our all,” Ethan explained in his statement.
“It seemed like we were constantly pulling each other in opposite directions in life with different goals.”
Both spouses wished each other the best in their conclusions.
Rumors had been circulating since late summer that the couple were heading their separate ways.
In September 2023, Olivia personally responded to some comments on social media that denied rumors that she and Ethan had filed for divorce.
