Renee Alway — a finalist on cycle 8 of “America’s Next Top Model” — is no longer behind bars, because TMZ’s learned she’s been released from prison and is now out on parole.
A rep for the Department of Corrections tells TMZ … Renee — sentenced to 12 years in prison back in 2014 on felony burglary, vehicle theft and weapons charges — is no longer an inmate at the California Institution for Women in Chino, CA. We’re told Renee was released Wednesday after serving a little more than 5 years behind bars since her June 2013 arrest.
TMZ broke the story … Renee was busted in Palm Springs after she was spotted wandering around a vacant home while carrying a gun and that led to a 6-hour standoff with police. It was at least the fourth time she was arrested that year … but her encounter with SWAT was the most bizarre, which produced a brutal mugshot and, later, a shaved head.
Be well, Renee.
