Brad Womack, who is currently starring on ABC's The Bachelor for the second time, opens up about his arrest record in a new interview.

"I'm sure I wouldn't be the first to admit that I had a couple of missteps when I was a teenager – some 20 odd years ago," says Womack, who was arrested years ago for carrying a forged driver's license, public intoxication and writing a bad check.

"Some of the claims have been blown out of proportion but I took responsibility for my actions and took immediate measures to remedy the situation," says Womack, who is speaking out because of magazine reports about his past.

"It was just part of my growing pains back when I was still young and naïve. You learn from your experiences good and bad – and you move on. It ultimately builds character,"  adds Womack, who sent home a girl with fangs on the most recent episode.
