Former "Celebrity Rehab" star Shifty Shellshock has been ordered to stay the hell away from his ex-GF, after allegedly roughing her up at a Ross Dress For Less back in February -- TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Shifty (real name Seth Binzer) was arrested at the discount clothing store after an employee claims he witnessed Shifty grab his girlfriend by the arm during a heated argument ... and get violent with her.

When cops arrived, they searched Shifty -- and claim they found rock cocaine. The former Crazy Town singer was arrested on the scene, and subsequently charged with battery and drug possession.

Shifty pled no contest to both charges today. He was sentenced to three years probation for the drug count, and ordered to stay away from his ex for 3 years on the battery count. He was also ordered to attend 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling.

But the guy's not letting the situation get him down -- in fact, we shot Shifty this Sunday in L.A. and he's completely turning his life around ... telling us, "I'm good. I'm clean. I'm happy."

The guy's even gained a few pounds, adding, "I'm eating. It happens when you stop doing drugs."

I thought this guy died last year. Seriously. And not just his career, but actually dead. But now that I see that he's NOT dead, I'm overwhelmed with a giant sense of... meh.

Interesting    

Ok, how many people from Celebrity Rehab have died or gone to jail/crazy now? When will people realize that rehab and 12 steps isn't the answer to addiction... not to mention all the meds they love shoving down everyone's throats.

If your an addict with cocaine in your pocket then your not clean. Your most likely using it.

"I'm clean!"

Yep, that'll last for a whole 2 seconds. It's sad when your biggest claim to fame is dr.drews "celebrity rehab". He'll lock on to anything in order to try to be relevant...dignity and pride is something of a foreign nature to this guy.

Celebrity Rehab: Has it really helped anyone? It's just a paycheck for everyone.

I think Shifty ****shock and Nick Stahl should get a reality show together. I would say Dr Drew could be on it too but that means one of them would die because Dr Drew does not have a good track record after three of his celebrity rehab patients have died.They could both run away from home to look for drugs like they do everyweek, and then their family members could track them with hunting dogs, they can go anywhere they want as long as they stay in LA. Whatever loser gets discovered first by his family loses. Maybe the show could be hosted by a D lister like Corey Feldman?
