America’s Next Top Model” finalist Renee Alway was arrested recently in Palm Springs and racked up a slew of charges after a six-hour standoff with police, according to TMZ.

Alway, who finished in third place on Cycle 8 of the CW show, has been charged with suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills and committing a felony while on bail, among other charges, after a bizarre incident on June 28.

The Palm Springs Police Department responded to a call regarding the sighting of “a suspicious female” lurking around a supposedly vacant house. When cops arrived at the scene, they allegedly found Alway hiding in the garage holding a gun.

The SWAT team was called in when police believed there was also an armed male suspect inside the house, but when they raided and searched the home, they found no one else inside.

Alway, 27, was booked and is still in jail, with bail set at $150,000. She’s due in court next week.

The troubled “ANTM” star had just been arrested weeks earlier on June 2, TMZ also reports, on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, petty theft and fraud. Alway plead not guilty and was released on bail. Then she got arrested again on June 28 for the gun incident, and that’s how she ended up with the additional “committing a felony while on bail” charge tacked on to the list.
