Brad Womack, The Bachelor's clean-cut Texan, had some troubles growing up – and he's not ashamed to admit it.

With tabloid reports this week highlighting a few alleged brushes with the law he had as a teenager, including carrying a forged driver's license, public intoxication and passing a bad check, Womack explains to PEOPLE how he learned from his mistakes.

"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. 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," Womack, now 38, says.

"It was just part of my growing pains back when I was still young and na├»ve. You learn from your experiences good and bad – and you move on. It ultimately builds character."
