Jenelle Evans
is back behind bars -- the "Teen Mom 2" star was arrested in North Carolina today for possession of a BUNCH of heroin ... and is also accused of attacking her husband, TMZ has learned. 

According to court documents obtained by TMZ ... cops discovered 12 bindles of heroin in Jenelle's possession when they arrived to her home following an alleged domestic dispute with her husband, Courtland Rogers.

FYI -- a bindle is commonly known as a small paper packet used for storing drugs.

According to the docs, Evans was also found to be illegally in possession of Percocet (a prescription painkiller) ... as well as plastic wrapping paper and a glass smoking pipe, which is considered illegal drug paraphernalia.

As for the assault charge, cops say Evans struck Rogers with a piece of furniture during a domestic dispute.

Rogers was arrested too -- cops say he assaulted Jenelle by "hitting her on the neck and striking her with a closed fist on her head."

Cops say Rogers was also in possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute ... and drug paraphernalia.  According to police, both Evans and Rogers denied possession of the heroin ... which is why they were both charged.

At the time of her arrest, 21-year-old Evans was also served with a warrant for failing to pay child support.

Evans has a history of legal problems -- she tested positive for marijuana and opiates while on probation ... and she was also involved in an epic girl-on-girl brawl in 2011.

This woman is the worst ham bein I've ever had the infortune of seeing on TV . She says her mother is the worst meanwhile the lady takes care of her kid , whom she doesn't even have the respect to babysit him for a whole, while her mother does food shoppig to feed this pigs child. But notice how she has time to mess around with worthless drug addicted men . She has time to eat marries to another low life but doesn't pay not care for her chil. Even animals take care of their young but this pig is good to open her legs and dumps the poor child. I'm so sad for that boy. I've seen the show to bond with my younger sister and I saw a shot where she left and you can see the disappointment in the boys eyes it was heartbreaking while she was consumed with dealing with another low life Kiefer. She needs to be throwing on jail where she won't break that boys heart and jut stay out . I just know that she will look back on this and regret her life and I hope by then its too late . No respect for women that don't care for their young and leave them for other to care and then have the nerve to criticise the ones who lend a hand to someone who deserves to be taught a huge lesson ,hopefully the law can teach her one. God bless the child she has but this loser needs a lesson

Its disturbing that people blame the mother and MTV for this. First off even without the show she would still be a horrible mother. She admitted to drugs before and during her pregnancy. She refuses to grow up for her child which is why her mother took custody. MTV is just blasting her life for money and show. Her mom isnt at fault what is she supposed to do drop her life to help her grown child? And she should get child support she is raising her grandson she has custody of him. I pray that this is a reality check for her but wont be surprised to see her behind bars again.

Seen this scenario repeated so many times with youngsters -- f/m gets a little attention and money and is now too good for husband or b/f AND thinks the laws don't apply to her. NEWS FLASH...TOOTS‼ That prison cell and subsequent legal merry-go-round is ice water cold reality in your face‼ ...z00m1

OMG...how surprising! NOT! This pathetic piece of crap has been a worthless trainwreck since her appearance on Teen Mom. Only saving grace is the fact her mother knows what garbage she is and is raising her beautiful son. God bless her and that innocent little angel who Ikm sure is the only good that will ever come from her. BTW...shouldn't it be bundle not bindle. A bundle of dope is10 bags

While everyone else calls her (and Farrah) names, I find it sad. They both need wake up calls. They aren't bad people...they are just making bad decisions. Janelle needs help with her drug addictions and both of them just need to get their priorities straight. The problem is their immaturity. As I said though, they aren't bad people. They aren't "whores" or "sluts" or whatever. They are just making poor decisions that, unfortunately, affects their children's lives.

Also, Janelle needs some new friends. Watching the video where she gets in the fight...her friends are egging her on. It's dumb. She hangs out with bad influences. She needs new friends who don't do drugs and don't push her (literally) to fight.

This is bad, but we saw this coming and she doesn't have custody of her son thank God. Farrah is worse. She's selfishly kept Sophia and went into porn. Drugs is drugs. But porn!? No sorry IMHO that's worse.
