Jenelle Evans has been arrested for possession of heroin. The “Teen Mom 2” star was arrested for possession, possession of paraphernalia and simple assault on husband Courtland Rogers,
The 21-year-old was in the news recently when she was rushed to hospital. She has cysts on her ovaries that have a history of rupturing.
The Oak Island, North Carolina native’s husband Courtland Rogers said she had been bleeding and was taken for treatment on the advice of her mother.
“I love Jenelle and I’m really scared for her,” He told Radar, adding, “Her mom told us to get her to the hospital as fast as possible, that’s why we called the ambulance.”
The hospital drama comes less than a week after shocking footage emerged of a woman believed the MTV personality snorting a crushed up painkiller.
The 21-year-old recovering heroin addict is shown bending over a counter and inhaling a white substance said to be a crushed up Percocet tablet in the video, which was shot in summer last year.
A combination of oxycodone and paracetamol, it is a narcotic pain reliever used to treat moderate to severe acute pain.
“Jenelle was on probation at the time and she bought pills from a drug dealer and crushed them up,” a source said.
Dressed in a T-shirt and jeans, she keeps her hair out of the way by wearing it in a bun as she inhales her drugs. The source claims she used Percocet instead of a harder drug as she knew any traces would be out of her system in just 72 hours, which would help her avoid being caught out by any probation ordered drug tests.
Evans has been arrested seven times on charges including breaking and entering, assault, violation of probation, and possession of drugs.
