Thrown in the slammer!
Over the years, Teen Mom has exposed viewers to teenage pregnancy, love and loss, and a whole lot of drug addiction. Addiction seems to be a common thing regardless of the season of Teen Mom, and it’s touched everyone from the Moms to their partners to their extended families — and MTV’s cameras haven’t shied away from capturing them using drugs during over the years!
Unfortunately, there’s one thing that seems to go hand-in-hand with drug addiction: jail time. We’ve seen that firsthand as some of the cast has spent time behind bars thanks to their struggles with substance abuse. For those who haven’t managed to beat their addiction, it’s no surprise that jail time is still a concern that looms overhead.
This Teen Mom star has proved exactly that. Although it seemed that they had overcome their addiction and were on the path to a stable life, they’re behind bars once again for drug addiction.
Although Jenelle Evans is reportedly clean from hard drugs right now, she has a history of addiction that was difficult for many to watch. While she dated her ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp, she developed a serious addiction to heroin that was even life threatening at times. She eventually got clean, but it’s not easy for former addicts to have access to drugs. So when she started dating heroin user Courtland Rogers, it wasn’t long before she relapsed.
“It was a hard relapse,” Jenelle wrote in her memoir Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom. She recalls a time that she asked him to get her marijuana to help with her heroin withdrawal symptoms, but he returned with more heroin. “I took more than I did before. Courtland was not only taking heroin, he started dealing it.”
Since then, Jenelle has gotten clean, and it seemed that Courtland did too. In fact he recently got married a new woman after he announced that he was having another child with her! Now it’s clear he’s not as clean as it seemed, as he has just been arrested for drug possession.
Intent to Sell
Courtland was arrested for possession of a Schedule III substance which includes ketamine, anabolic steroids, and some barbituates, according to Radar Online. Courtland was arrested on Feb. 22 for “possession with intent to manufacture/sell a schedule III controlled substance.” According to the outlet, he was put in Brunswick County Jail for the drug violation as well as a parole violation.
His court date is scheduled for Feb. 26.
