Troubled 16 and Pregnant star Whitney Purvis was arrested yesterday for shoplifting a pregnancy test, and now she's speaking out to fans on Facebook.

Whitney was charged with stealing a First Response test at a Wal-mart, taking it into the bathroom and using it (with results unknown), then trying to leave the store.

As some of our readers have noted, pregnancy tests can be taken for free at some clinics, while other stores sell them for much less. 

Whitney's had a hard time of it: Her mom was arrested for possession of meth last summer, and just last month on Facebook, Whitney wrote, "I just want to say sorry to everyone that I've ever hurt/upset. I've been very immature in the past & I've made a lot of mistakes. I hope to one day be forgiven by everyone I've ever done anything to."

And though there were pics of her with a new boyfriend, on Valentine's Day, Whitney wrote, "Why is it that we don't always recognize the moment love begins, but always recognize the moment it ends? #vdayfail."

So what does she have to say about her arrest? She sent out the following message to her subscribers on Facebook:

Sometimes it takes hittin' rockbottom..

Has Whitney really hit rock bottom? And can the teen mom turn her life around?
