'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 enables these kids by providing them money to continue their destructive ways of life. Sad.

the show is ridiculous and these people are poor excuses for human beings. MTV should be totally ashamed that they are promoting this trash - and TMZ also for perpetually giving them the PR they so crave...
