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.

All these people that support her...saying...oh she's changed, don't judge her for her past! Janelle has not changed and her attitude and life disgust me just as much as when this show was filmed as it does now. She needs to spend a year or two in jail.

This is so ridiculous that Jenelle Evans continues to break the law . She doesn't deserve to have any custody of Jace . He belongs with Barbara . Teen mom should be fired from teen mom . Jenelle has had plenty of chances to get her life together .

Luck of the Draw    

MTV played footage of Jenelle while she was high as a kite, when she was talking to Barbara about Jace's birthday. Her pupils were pin-points, and she was very distant and unattentive while talking. MTV didn't even acknowledge her heroin use. If they are going to exploit young girls who make irresponsible decisions, they can at least address the dangers and the drama drugs can cause. Jenelle doesn't seem to care that addicts follow one of three paths: they get tired of the drama and spending the money, and quit, they do something stupid, get caught, and land in jail, or they die. I hope the judge in her case gives her a few years, so she can clean up and get help, because she is going to die. She looks like **** right now, all skinny and junkied out.

When will MTV pull the plug on this girl? Surely if they can cancel Buckwild when Shaine Gandee dies they can say enough is enough with Janelle Evans. MTV is just playing the enabler role.

This person needs to be sent to a year long rehab as she can't stay clean for more then a few weeks. She has the worse choice in men and doesn't know how to deal with real life situations. She'd never get custody of her son,ever and she'd only be allowed to see him under court supervision in my opinion. She's going to wind up dead eventually!

This kind of trash programing will remain on television as long as TV executives buy it and put it on Tevevision and people continue to watch these train wreck programs.

They should leave her dumbass in jail this time. No one should bail her out or even give a **** that she is there. Lucky for her kid that her mother has custody and he wasnt there. Poor Jace. I hope she gets real jail time . Not a slap on the wrist!

Jemelle is deeply troubled. Looks like Barbara is going to be raising another child. (Jace) Jenelle needed to be married about as much as she needed to have a child 3 years ago. She needs to go to rehab, forgotten by the tv camera, and no one needs to know about any of it. But, if someone doesn't want help, you can't make them accept it. This is drug abuse. Her attitude, her actions...all of it...

Poor Jace. Not only does his mother not give a **** about him and does nothing to care for him, but she also would rather spend her money on supporting her junkie lifestyle rather than pay his child support. He'd be better off if he never knew her.
