According to TMZ, Jenelle, 19, was arrested over the weekend for assault. And yes, this is in relation to the brutal fight caught on tape in which Jenelle can be seen attacking and repeatedly punching Britany Truett.
Britany, age 19 and also a teen mom, had told TMZ on Friday that she did not want to press charges, and that she simply wanted everything to go away. Well, fast forward to this weekend, and it seems Britany had a change of heart. However, unfortunately for Britany, she was also arrested. We’re not sure as to why Britany, who was the clear victim in the attack and was defending herself, would be arrested as well.
Oak Island Police tells TMZ Jenelle was booked into Brunswick County Jail on Sunday night and was released shortly after posting $500 bond. Jenelle was charged with assault and “affray for fighting.” Both Jenelle and Britany are due back in court April 26.
Jenelle’s attorney tells TMZ, “Based on the information that I have received, I believe Jenelle was set up.” Right, because somebody set her up to repeatedly punch a woman on camera.
And it doesn’t end there as Jenelle’s boyfriend Kieffer Delp, 20, the cause of Jenelle and Britany’s fight, was also arrested last night. Evidently, cops had a warrant for Keiffer based on a cocaine charge from last year and as luck would have it, they found him at Jenelle’s house and arrested him too.
