Jenelle Evans will be adding another mugshot to her collection. The 21-year-old Teen Mom 2 star was arrested on Monday, May 20 after failing to appear in court.

Evans was scheduled to appear at Brunswick County District Court in North Carolina for a hearing in her cyberstalking case, but didn't arrive on time.

"Jenelle was running late to court," her attorney, Dustin Sullivan, tells Us Weekly. "I told the court she was on her way and the court said they will keep it open. It was the last case of the day, so they put a $1,000 secure bond on her at the end of the day."

The MTV star turned herself in and posted the $1,000 bond. "She was virtually under arrest for failure to appear so she turned herself in," Sullivan explained. "I believe she has already been released."

Just last week, Evans appeared in court to attend a hearing regarding her Apr. 23 arrest for heroin possession and one charge of assault on husband Courtland Rogers. "Her court date has been continued by the State of N.C. until July 1, 2013," Sullivan told Wetpaint Entertainment following her hearing. "I anticipate that she will be indicted before that court date. No new information was given but that is typical in felony cases still in district court for us."
