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."

The real news is that this guy actually has a girlfriend. I get that there are women who go for that tattooed, down and out bad boy looser look, but what kind of woman lets him climb on top of her and have sex? Yuck!!

I have 20 years clean . . he can do it IF he quits trying to be the center of attention constantly. He reminds me of a little child who acts out for attention due to his insecurities and TRYING to fit in in the whole R&R BS scene. Sobriety is about working the Steps and humility. I wish him the best but IF you want to change, you have to change everything.
