Teen Mom 2‘s Jenelle Evans is getting better at posing for mug shots, which could be expected for someone with 15 to her name.
The latest picture was taken this morning, one day after an arrest warrant was issued for her alleged assault of ex-fiance Nathan Griffith. According to the police report issued yesterday, Nathan said Jenelle lured him outside his apartment by threatening to damage his truck. When he met her, Nathan claimed Jenelle “slapped, punched and tried to kick him down some stairs” and “scratched and clawed his back and neck.”
Jenelle initially defended herself on her PR Twitter page by saying Nathan ran over her with the truck. She added she was “seeking charges and is ready to get the truth out.” However, Jenelle’s lawyer, Amy S. Lawrence, told Us Weekly yesterday that Jenelle wasn’t actually going to press charges. She also said Nathan hoped to have the charges against Jenelle dismissed.
“He understands that she’s hurt because they’ve broken up, and he’s dating somebody else and things escalated in a way they shouldn’t have,” Lawrence said, adding Nathan said he was pressured into pressing charges by the police. “He does not want her to have any kind of criminal consequence for this.”
Lawrence added Jenelle may have lashed out because she hoped to make her tumultuous relationship with Nathan work.
“I think that in her heart she thought that maybe with them breaking up that they would get back together because they have a child together,” the attorney explained. “I think she’s just very hurt that he has moved on.”
Lawrence said there will be a bond hearing this afternoon. She said Jenelle and Nathan will also work on the custody agreement for their 11-month-old son, Kaiser, who is currently in Nathan’s care.
Camera crews reportedly went along with Jenelle when she turned herself in this morning, so expect to hear more about Jenelle’s side of the story on the upcoming season of Teen Mom 2, which premieres on MTV on July 9.
