Jenelle was arrested by the Brunswick County Sheriff's Department in North Caroline for Heroin Possession and Assault. And just who did she assault? Husband Courtland Rodgers. This comes days after Courtland settled his own case for assaulting Jenelle!
TMZ obtained court documents which declare that police discovered 12 bindles of heroin in the home Jenelle is sharing or inhabiting with Courtland when they responded to a domestic violence call. Jenelle is accused of hitting Courtland with a piece of furniture during the domestic dispute.

In her latest legal infraction, Jenelle is facing 5 criminal charges:
- possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute
- simple assault
- simple possession of a schedule II controlled substance
- possession of drug paraphernalia
Jenelle was also allegedly discovered with a "plastic wrapping paper and a glass smoking pipe, which is considered illegal drug paraphernalia." Bond is currently set at $20,260.
Jenelle recently did two brief stints in rehab before insisting she had no problems and was going to settle her issues on her own. Jenelle did a trip to rehab during Thanksgiving after friends and family members claim she overdosed on heroin at her mother's house. This is one of many arrests for Jenelle, whose behavior reportedly has MTV seriously considering canceling the Teen Mom 2 show.
In addition to all of this during the time of the arrest, Jenelle was also served with an outstanding warrant for failing to pay child support for three-year-old son Jace. Jenelle's mom Barbara currently has custody.
We'll be updating you on the latest as it unfolds. I have to say this is deeply saddening.
