'16 & Preggo' Couple -- SO MANY ARRESTS!

5/8/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The newest couple to be introduced on MTV's "16 & Pregnant" has been arrested a combined FOUR TIMES in the past year -- with charges ranging from coke possession to assault on a female ... TMZ has learned.

The most recent arrest involves 17-year-old Jamie McKay -- who was popped for simple assault back in January for an incident involving a female classmate. According to court documents, McKay punched the girl in the back of the head -- TWICE -- but the case was eventually dismissed.

As for her baby daddy -- 18-year-old Ryan McElrath -- he was arrested for cocaine and weed possession back in July ... followed by an underage drinking bust in August.

But the most shocking part -- Ryan was busted for "assault on a female" and resisting police officers back in November. TMZ has learned McElrath's alleged victim was NOT his baby mama.

McElrath is due back in a North Carolina courtroom later this month.

TMZ spoke with McElrath who told us, "All of these are false accusations."

Attempts to reach McKay were unsuccessful.

MTV needs to change the name of their show to "16 and Criminal and Incidentally also Pregnant". There are thousands of teens who get pregnant who aren't delinquents. MTV, of course, has decided to paint a different picture.

I have news for all of you.

This disease has spread not only to every 20-something LOSER out there - but has headed NORTH and has infected women all the way to their 50s.

And the most sickening thing about this is now that he is on a TV show he will make more money in one month than many of us make in a year.

So ridiculous that anyone watches this trash. It is so obvious they pick the worst people intentionally (for ratings). They know well ahead about their backgrounds -- it's not rocket science to run a background check. It's simple. So they get these types on purpose. Shame on anyone who watches this show. It's not worth the money spent or the time watching.
