Jenelle Evans wants to set the record straight about her most recent arrest, and as excuses go, this one isn't terribly interesting, but it is believable.
She just forgot about that court date, or the fact that she had to appear in person, because she just has too many damn court dates to keep track of.
After getting arrested for no-showing a court date in her cyber-stalking case, the Teen Mom 2 star took to her blog to tell us what happened that day.
Long story short: Jenelle Evans embarked on a trip to visit her brother in Hickory, N.C., six hours away from her home, and forgot about the hearing.
Writes the troubled reality star:
"My mom tells me 'check your court dates before we leave.' I did and I told her all my court dates and didn't realize I had ONE which was yesterday's court date."
"Well as you all know, or pay attention to my Twitter, I have been waking up at 5 am every day."
"So yesterday I was up for hours bored waiting on my mom, Jace, and my brother to wake up."
"Then at 9 am I get a text from my lawyer telling me 'Make sure youre at court at 9:30am.'" As soon as I see that text my heart dropped out of my ass!"
"I responded with, 'Do I have to be there?' Because sometimes I don't have to be there, well he responded with 'They are holding the case open until you get here.'"
Jenelle's mother, Barbara Evans, was less than pleased.
"I got yelled at the whole way back 6 hours home. Then half way home to court, my lawyer calls and tell me 'Well they closed court early at 1 pm.'"
"They said they are charging you with a FTA and $1000 secure bond.' I'm like 'Are you kidding me?!!!!!! Ill get to court before 4 pm when it's REALLY over with.'"
The reality star was advised to "hand myself in, bond out, then they will drop my charges," and she did. Jenelle was in and out of jail within two hours.
Until next arrest/court date ...
