WBTW adds, “The victim [Jessica] claims Evans threw a drinking glass at her head, causing injury. It was not immediately known if the victim required medical attention.”
Jenelle’s rep Johnny Donovan told TMZ Nathan set Jenelle up. Nathan allegedly brought his girlfriend Jessica to his baby mama/ ex-fiancee Jenelle’s house to provoke Jenelle. It worked. Jenelle got arrested again (TMZ counts 9 arrests whereas OK! Magazine says it’s more like 16+ times).
Johnny spoke to The Ashley about what happened:
“Nathan provoked her,” Johnny told The Ashley. “That’s what he does, he tries to make her look bad and he succeeded today. That’s pretty much it.”
Johnny stated that Jenelle has been working really hard to avoid more drama.
“She’s been really focused. She just got a new house in Wilmington, North Carolina,” he said. “She’s trying to move away from the drama, trying to move away from Nathan. She’s been really focused and really positive, and then this happened today.”
Johnny couldn’t confirm or deny whether Jenelle really did hit Jessica with a glass, as TMZ states.
“I wasn’t there,” he said. “But I’m sure they had an argument and when you provoke someone, they’re not going to hold back and that’s it.” [via The Ashley]
The Ashley adds, “The assault was not captured by MTV, as the Teen Mom 2 girls have completed filming for Season 6 and are not currently being followed by a camera crew.”
RadarOnline sources explain further why Nathan was at Jenelle’s house in the first place: “Jenelle told Nathan to come get his stuff out of their house because she is moving in two weeks and he brought his new girlfriend, Jessica Henry.”
What happened when Nathan and Jessica arrived at Jenelle’s house? “This really made Jenelle mad. They ended up getting in a fight and she threw a glass at Jessica. So Nathan called the cops.”
How did Jenelle react to being arrested? “[Jenelle] was cooperative. She can only be held here for six hours and she is waiting to be transferred to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.”
The source agrees that “[Nathan] provoked [Jenelle]. He is only trying to make her look bad.”
What was Jenelle arrested for? 3rd degree assault and battery!
