Shoplifting is no joke, but one of Jax Taylor's castmates laughed after discovering he had been arrested for allegedly stealing a pair of sunglasses!
The Vanderpump Rules cast was in Hawaii a couple weeks ago when the hunky SUR bartender was caught on tape walking out of a boutique with a pair of shades he didn't pay for. He was stopped by police and jailed.
We caught up with Jax at the launch of costar Katie Maloney's Pucker & Pout blog Thursday night. While he didn't talk about the incident, his costars revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY how they reacted when they learned of his arrest.
Lisa Vanderpump — who is an executive producer on the reality TV show AND Jax's boss at SUR — was obviously unhappy. She admitted that he's had been disciplined:
"Absolutely. We're dealing with it. I am happy to say I see some type of remorse [from Jax]. People make mistakes and he definitely made a big one."
Peter Madrigal — a manager at SUR — came to his friend's defense:

Scheana Shay actually found the incident humorous:
