Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is in hot water again.

According to TMZ, Evans, 20, was arrested for assault in North Carolina on Sunday. She was in possession of marijuana at the time of her arrest, the site reports. The troubled star of MTV’s reality series about four young mothers has since posted bail and is apparently free on custody.

According to TMZ, she was also arrested in March on stalking charges. Evans had numerous run-ins with the law the previous year as well, when she faced assault, drug paraphernalia and probation violation charges.
