'Teen Mom 2' Star Jenelle Evans Arrested for Assault

 MTV

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was arrested Sunday night after a video surfaced last week of her brutally beating another teen.

Evans, 19, was booked by Oak Island Police for assault and "affray for fighting" at Brunswick County Jail in North Carolina and released on bond shortly after. She is due in court April 26.

TMZ.com released a video of Evans punching and wrestling Britany Truett last week.

Truett said at first she wouldn't press charges, but changed her mind over the weekend.

Evan's attorney tells TMZ, "Based on the information that I have received, I believe Jenelle was set up." The video shows her being pushed into Truett and egged on by her friends.

TMZ also reports the guy Evans and Truett were fighting over, Kieffer Delp, was arrested because police had a warrant on a cocaine charge from 2010.

Evans has a 1-year-old son named Jace.
