Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans is once again in trouble with the law.

The MTV reality star, 19, was arrested in her native Oak Island, NC, on Sunday night, TMZ confirmed. And now the site reports that Evans has been charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, for fighting in a public place. The other woman involved in the altercation -- Britany Truett and Brittany Maggard -- have also been charged.

The offense: A buzzed-about web video (posted late last week) in which Evans is seen brutally fighting with another young woman. Evans' victim in the clip, Britany Truet, accuses Evans of assault and "affray for fighting."

Evans is due in court April 26. Claims her attorney: "Based on the information I have received, I believe Jenelle was set up."

Following a bitter custody war, Evans handed over custody of her 19-month-old son, Jace, to her mother Barbara Evans last spring.
