Brunswick County Jail

Courtland Rogers, ex-husband of Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, has landed back in jail, a day after the two finalized their divorce.

Rogers, who is 28 and was on probation, was booked at the Brunswick County Jail in Bolvia, North Carolina at 10:38 a.m. ET on Wednesday, June 11, for failing to appear in court on a felony charge. Bail was set at $150,000 and his next court date is on July 7, a spokesperson said. No further details were made available.

"On my way to jail they got me please write me p.o. box 9 bolivia nc 28422," he wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday, adding, "I love yall so much plsse watch out for my momma she needs yalls support so bad."

If Rogers is convicted, he could be sentenced to several months in jail. Records show that since 2006 he has served several stints behind bars, most recently in January on drug charges.

"I knew it would eventually happen again, because he is a constant troublemaker," Evans, 23, told E! News. "He tried contacting me for two days before his arrest and I ignored him. I'm just happy he's gone so he can leave me to be with my family and start this new chapter of my life."

On Tuesday, she and Rogers finalized their divorce. The two had wed in December 2012 and separated in April 2013, when they were both arrested for heroin possession and assault following a scuffle. Both have battled addiction problems.

Evans, who has a son, Jace, from a previous relationship, is currently pregnant again—she and new beau Nathan Griffith are expecting their first child together. They plan to name the baby Kaiser.

On Tuesday, Rogers tweeted lyrics to Eminem's 2003 song to convey his feelings about ending his marriage.

"I'M SINGLE NO ring on this finger now i'll never let another chic bring me downnnn," he said.
