Jenelle Evans Arrested for Heroin Possession and Assault

got herself into a trouble again as Brunswick County Police arrested her on Tuesday, April 23. According to TMZ, the police, who was called to Evan's home following a report that said she and husband Courtland Rogers were fighting, discovered 12 bindles (small foil packages) of heroin and percocet without prescription in Evan's possession.

In addition to being charged with heroin and controlled substance possession, Evans is charged with assault after Rogers claimed that she hit him with a piece of furniture during the altercation. Rogers was then arrested too for allegedly assaulting his wife by "hitting her on the neck and striking her with a closed fist on her head" and possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell and distribute.

Evan's attorney, Dustin R.T. Sullivan, confirmed the arrest news to E! News. He said that Evans was in custody with two $10,000 pending bonds, one for the drugs possession charge and one for the assault. According to Sullivan, Evans was "very upset. She was crying in court. This just happened. She was in bad shape."

Addressing Evan's arrest, a source told Radar Online, "Courtland set Jenelle up." The source believed that the drugs belonged to Rogers and "with them living together, anything found in the common areas of the house leaves all residents accountable."

This wasn't Evan's first run-in with the law. In 2011, the 21-year-old star of MTV's "" was arrested for attacking another woman. In 2012, she and her then-boyfriend, Gary Head, were arrested on drug and assault charges.
