Posted on

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been arrested on a probation violation, according to a spokesperson for North Carolina’s Brunswick County Detention Center. Evans was taken into custody last night, though details have not yet been released as to the circumstances of her arrest. Evans’ 12-month probation term stems from a March assault charge that was recorded on video, as well as a drug paraphernalia charge. Evans’ lawyer and MTV did not immediately respond to requests for comment. UPDATE: Evans’ attorney has responded, saying, “At this time we have no comment as to the allegations.” He added that Evans’ “violations are for testing positive again for marijuana and opiates” and confirmed that she is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 24.
