Jenelle Evans has perfected her “mug shot” look. The “Teen Mom 2” star’s latest head shot – courtesy of Horry County police – was released after she was arrested Thursday for hitting her ex-fiancé’s new girlfriend.
The new shot shows Evans, 23, sporting dark hair in an orange jumpsuit. According to the Horry County Sheriff’s Office, she is still incarcerated pre-trial with no bail set. She was booked at 8:29 p.m.
Myrtle Beach Online reports that Evans is charged with third-degree assault and battery. She was brought to J. Reuben Detention Center for a bond hearing.
Evans' arrest stems from an altercation Thursday evening. Her ex Nathan Griffith reportedly arrived at the reality star’s South Carolina home with his new girlfriend. Griffith was reportedly there to pick up some of his items when Evans assaulted the unidentified 29-year-old woman. Police told TMZ that Evans came out of the house and “threw a glass” at the victim, striking her on the head.
Evans' manager, Johnny Donovan, told Ashley’s Reality Roundup that his client was “provoked” by Griffith.
“That’s what he does -- he tries to make her look bad and he succeeded today,” Donovan explained. “That’s pretty much it.”
Meanwhile, there are also rumors that Griffith’s girlfriend was the one who “prodded” Evans by allegedly pouring water on her. Ashley’s Reality Roundup has not been able to confirm.
Of course, this isn’t Jenelle Evans' first run-in with police. Her first arrest occurred in October 2010 when she was detained with then-boyfriend Kieffer Delp for breaking and entering and drug possession. In May 2011 she was arrested for assault, and arrested again in August 2011 for violating her parole. In January 2012 she was arrested after allegedly threatening a former roommate. The following year in December 2013 she was charged with breach of peace. In February 2015 she was detained for driving without a license, and this past May she was charged with criminal domestic violence after reportedly assaulting Griffith at his Myrtle Beach, S.C., home.
