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.

Jenelle is a loser and will always be a loser. She plays victim all the time and lies constantly. She should be kissing her mothers ass on a daily basis for raising her son. Maybe if she did some considerable jail time it would straighten her out, but I doubt it. Her mother should keep herself and that child as far away from Jenelle as she can.

Makes me sick to my stomach. I wish I could of had the opportunity to be on the show. I'm not saying all of them are junkies. But don't deserve it to be on the show. If I was on the show o would of done so much more to help people considering I have money to spare for instance hurricane sandy I would of donated a lot of money. All I'm saying is they should of made better decisions when it came to choosing the cast. Because there is other people out there who deserve it more.

And for all you saying she should kill herself that's a bit harsh. You should never wish that upon someone. Do me a favor and go to church.

A few months ago they had a girl on dr. Phil who either got pregnant or was trying to because she wanted to be on teen mom. Way to go MTV . Your trash tv should be taken off the air. Once upon a time you actually played music.

So in Jenelle-logic, she was addicted to weed like it was crack, couldnt quit to save her life, and even when into in-patient rehab for her addiction (those of us who have been in real treatment know that the "weed addicts" should be laughed out). Weed is nothing but a mental addiction. So anyway, she cant even break free from weed - so she thinks its a good idea to step it up a notch and start using the most powerfully addictive drug there is?? I honestly think there is something really wrong with her, mentally. Or she is just the most selfish sociopath I have ever seen, and MTV needs to stop exploiting her destructive life and realize where the money they give her is going. Certainly not to her son. She disgusts me, and she looks like a busted, jacked up version of Kristin Stewart on meth.
