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 like how they refer to it as "rock cocaine." I've heard people in the past say that when it's a black person they call it crack and when it's a white person, it's "rock cocaine." TMZ following the trend I see.

I have been to Ross Dress for Less in Van Nuys. The lines are long and there is no air conditioning! I would catch a case there too, if I stayed there long enough!

I am glad you r clean but where is your little boy? I remember how excited he was to see you on celeb rehab. he needs you to be there for him. my son was a drug addict alcoholic. he died in sept 2010, he has left 3 girls without a dad. Try to stay clean and sober for yourself, but keep your son close. there is so much more to life than chasing the drugs.

Steroids and cocaine...cannot be the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast! If you could have asked all the OD'd celebs - how they were doing the day before they died...they would all of said..."Good! Clean & Sober! One day at a time man! etc etc...
