Jenelle Evans is further proof that to star on MTV's "Teen Mom," you apparently have to be able to hand out some beat downs. Yep, a second "Teen Mom" has been busted for attacking someone on film.

Jenelle Evans, one of four mothers on MTV's "Teen Mom 2", was arrested Sunday in Oak Island, North Carolina for assault after celebrity gossip site TMZ posted her rabid attack on another girl last week.

It's yet another black eye for the "Teen Mom" reality series.

In the "Teen Mom's" catfight video, the 19-year-old reality star punches and throws down another girl, as a crowd eggs her on.

A classy bunch, no doubt.

After a friend pushes Evans into Britany Truett, Evans throws the first punch. Screams can be heard from Evans' friends encouraging the fight. Truett was arrested, as was the woman who pushed Evans to start the fight. At least the police are going after all of these Southern belles.

It's hard to tell exactly what spurred the brawl, but Truett reportedly invited Evans over to talk about a guy they were fighting over, but things quickly turned vicious.

Evans, the mother of 1-year-old Jace, found reality fame first on MTV's "Sixteen and Pregnant" and now on "Teen Mom 2." The police relied on the video to arrest Evans, who is set to return to court April 26, ABC reports.

The brawl caught on tape is the latest controversy for Jenelle Evans and for "Teen Mom" reality show which follows four teens coping with young motherhood.

Amber Portwood, a star of the first installment of the show, was seen on television repeatedly punching and slapping her on-again, off-again fiancé, Gary Shirley while their daughter Leah was nearby. She now faces two felonies.
