(OAK BRANCH, N.C.) -- More trouble for Teen Mom Jenelle Evans. The 19-year-old star of the MTV reality series Teen Mom 2 was arrested Monday for violating her probation after she tested positive for marijuana and opiate use during a meeting with her parole officer in her hometown Oak Branch, N.C.
According to her attorney Dustin Sullivan, Evans also violated her probation by associating with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Kieffer Delp, "a known drug user," on July 16 and Aug. 6.
"She's facing a 45-day active sentence," Sullivan told ABC News. "The judge could put her in jail for 45 days. Up to this point, I've had 12 or 13 charges dismissed. I've never had to have that conversation with her until now."
Sullivan said he has yet to speak to his client since she was placed behind bars on $10,000 bond Monday. He said she was released that night.
Back in April, the teen mom was sentenced to 12 months probation after she pled guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia. Evans is due in court August 24.
In March, Evans was charged with simple assault after a video surfaced of her punching a young woman. The woman, Brittany Truett, told ABC News that Evans attacked her in a fit of jealousy because Delp was flirting with Truett. Sullivan told ABC News at that time that his client might have been the victim of a set up.
