Teen Mom Lawyer on Charges: It's a Set Up!

3/29/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The lawyer for "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans tells TMZ ... his client is the victim of a set up, and money is at the bottom of it all.

Dustin Sullivan, Jenelle's lawyer, tells us he has a "serious problem" with the fact that Brittany Maggard -- the woman who pushed Jenelle before the brawl -- and other parties involved were "paid substantially" for pictures and videos related to the incident.

Sullivan says it's suspicious that cameras were present when Jenelle arrived -- indeed, Sullivan says, multiple cameras were present capturing different angles of the impending brawl.

Sullivan is in the process of interviewing witnesses to determine if Britany Truett -- the woman who caught the beatdown -- pre-programmed the melee. 

And, Sullivan says, it's "highly suspicious" Britany waited five days before calling the cops.

AND OMG PEOPLE VIDEOTAPE FIGHTS ALL THE TIME!! Just go to youtube or any other fighting website. If you ask me, Jenelle set the crap up because JENELLE WAS AT THE GIRLS HOUSE. Plus, if it was a set up why was everyone on Jenelles side. If it was a set up Jenelle would have been told "get off her ****ing hair before I stomp on your face." but, no it Britany who was being victimized. Plus, I think she didn't call within 5 days because she was debating if she should put someone who was her friend for years in jail or not. Her parents probally told her to call anyways.

8 Seconds into video, man standing behind Brittnay, in view of jennelle clearly gives the sign to push her, and then its 13 seconds after push before the first 3 punchs are thrown. so for this conspiracy to work, they would have to know she would want to go confront girl, they would have to know she would ask for backup, they would have to know that jenelle would fight. how could they possibly know that when she got into it with brittnay, she would think, ill take brittnay! This Lawyer thinks he is F. Lee Baily but he is from same area, so he prolly thinks confronting people in their front yard with 10 friends and punching them in mouth is normal behavior, if someone shoves you at least, cuz i know if someone shoves me, i usually punch person they shoved me into at least 20 timesin face lol, cuz thats normal human behavior right?
