    Jenelle Evans' Arrest: Why I Missed My Court Hearing

    Jenelle Evans wants to set the record straight.

    After getting arrested on Monday for failing to attend her court hearing on time, the Teen Mom 2 star explained on her blog yesterday what exactly happened that morning (in a way that only Jenelle can illustrate), and it basically all started by planning a trip to visit her older brother in Hickory, N.C., which is six hours away from Jenelle's home.

    "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," she wrote.

    "Well as you all know, or pay attention to my Twitter, I have been waking up at 5am every morning. So yesterday morning I wake up and was up for hours bored waiting on my mom, Jace, and my brother to wake up," Evans continued.

    "Then at 9am I get a text from my lawyer telling me 'Make sure your at court at 9:30am.' As soon as I seem 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.'"

    As you can probably imagine, Jenelle's mother, Barbara, was less than pleased when she heard the news.

    "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 1pm and 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 4pm when it's REALLY over with.'"

    The reality star was advised to "hand myself in, bond out, then they will drop my charges," and was in and out of jail within two hours.
