Having to work with your ex-girlfriend seems like punishment enough to us. But it appears that Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor actually had to spend time in jail recently, judging from a preview video of this week's episode.

In the clip, Lisa Vanderpump asks Jax where he's been. "I was in jail," Jax responds, to which Lisa says, "Good excuse  that's actually your best one yet."

However, Jax is being serious. "Lisa, I'm not kidding," he tells her. "I've been in jail since Saturday night," pointing out that he was in the clink for "four days." Yikes.

So what happened? "I got pulled over [while leaving SUR], and a warrant came up from a thing I had when I was 24 years old," Jax says, who also says this wasn't his first time in the Gray Bar Hotel.

Jax explains that he wouldn't have been able to call anyone from the restaurant to let them know where he was. "I don't memorize numbers," he tells Lisa. "They're all in my phone."

That said, Jax is able to find a silver lining in the whole ordeal. "I want to hang out with Stassi, Kristen, and Katie?" Jax says. "Jail seems a little bit better." Zing!

Are you surprised that Jax went to jail? And what do you think he did when he was 24?
