U.S. reality star Jenelle Evans has been arrested for disturbing the peace in South Carolina.

The troubled Teen Mom star was taken into custody on Saturday (14Dec13) after she allegedly broke the North Myrtle Beach peace ordinance following a "domestic disturbance" with boyfriend Nathan Griffith.

A police spokesperson tells GossipCop.com, "(Cops were dispatched to a scene) regarding a male and female yelling profanity outside their residence, causing a public disturbance. (Evans) locked him out of the house due to a verbal argument."

Griffith volunteered to temporarily leave to "let things cool off", but cops were called a second time "to respond to complaints about loud yelling".

When police officers arrived back on the scene, Evans reportedly became uncooperative.

She was subsequently arrested for breach of peace, but posted bail and was out within an hour.

Last week, Evans confirmed she was expecting her second child with Griffith. She does not currently have custody of her four-year-old son, Jace.

The arrest is the latest legal mishap for Evans - in August (13), she was arrested after failing a random drug test while in court to face charges relating to a bust-up with her estranged husband, Courtland Rogers, in April (13).
