Courtland Rogers is in trouble with the law.
The ex-husband of Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans, Rogers is no stranger to run-ins with the police, nearly always do to a penchant for narcotics.
In March, for example, he was arrested on one felony account of possession of a schedule III drug with intent to manufacture, sell, or distribute.
This arrest came about a year and a half after Rogers was booked for heroin possession.
At that point, he had already been divorced from Jenelle for several months, but his name will always be associated with the Teen Mom veteran due to their shared history of drug abuse.
It's a history that Evans would not say is in the past...
... but about which Courtland cannot make the same claim.
Scroll down to learn why:
According to TMZ, Rogers was hauled off to a North Carolina jail on Tuesday after being indicted last month.
The troubled Z-Lister is facing a pair of drug-related charges:
1. Selling and delivering schedule III substances.
2. Possession with intent to sell and distribute schedule III substances.
These are serious allegations, both of which stem from a drug possession-related arrest back in November.
(It can be hard to keep up, we know. But the general theme here is that Rogers gets caught with a lot of big-time drugs on him. Often.)
Rogers was also hit with an habitual felon charge because he'd been arrested and convicted for his third felony in the state in 2013.
Courtland was released from Brunswick County Jail on a $15,000 bond, but may very well face prison time for this latest arrest.
Thankfully, Rogers had no kids with Jenelle; the pair were married for fewer than two years.
However, Rogers did welcome a son named Camryn into the world just 10 days ago, courtesy of wife Lindsey.
He does come across like a doting dad on social media, sharing a picture just last night of himself and his newborn, along with the caption: "me and my boy."
We just hope Rogers makes a strong commitment to being this boy's father, although it may already be too late.
In December, Courtland took to Twitter to insist that he was finished using drugs, writing at the time:
"So NOW with 2 and a half years of sobriety & preparing for my son's birth I am focused on my family because in the end... that's ALL THAT MATTERS."
Alas, drug addiction is no joke.
We very much hope Rogers finds the help that he seems to need, even if it means he sits in jail for a long period of time.

Since then, a look at divorce documents has shed further light on how her once-happy marriage to Hank Baskett has come to an end.
There is good news, however: Kendra is reportedly doing better than she has in a long time.
On April 6, after what has been characterized as months of "hype," Kendra filed for divorce after nearly 9 years of marriage.
However, sources tell Us Weekly that Kendra Wilkinson is "in a much better place" now that she's signed the documents.
That's a euphemism that people often use after someone has died, but it may be appropriate now that her marriage has come to a tearful end.
Kendra's BFF is Jessica Hall, as Kendra on Top viewers are likely aware. And apparently Kendra has been relying upon Jessica for emotional support during this difficult time.
"Jessica is helping Kendra move on."
Of course, Kendra has also been going on little adventures -- even hitting the slopes to snowboard away from her problems.
"Kendra feels free and wants to let loose a little bit and just have a good time!"
The source continues to explain why, as stressful as divorce can be, things are getting better for Kendra now that it's official.
"She's been really unhappy and felt uncomfortable in the marriage."
Sometimes, the greatest emotional agony and turmoil comes before a major decision is made.
Once you've made it official, it's a huge weight off of your shoulders and you can breathe a sigh of relief.
In this case, it looks like the "weight" that was burdening Kendra was repeated conflicts with Hank.
"They have been fighting a lot."
That is so sad.
Just a couple of weeks into the year, Kendra revealed that 2018 has been the hardest year of her life.
So yes, she has been suffering.
In light of what we now know about how her marriage to Hank has fallen apart, this is not surprising.
In divorce papers, Kendra listed the date of separation as ... January 1 of 2018.
So yes, we can understand why, just days later, she was struggling and miserable.
We should point out that just because Kendra is happier now that the divorce is in writing doesn't mean that she and Hank are living separate lives now.
First of all, they are still linked -- and will always be linked -- by their two children, 8-year-old Hank IV and 6-year-old Alijah.
Second of all, as Kendra recently made clear, they're still going to see each other for various functions.
On Monday, the two were joined by their children from the Netflix premiere of Lost in Space.
(Fans will remember Kendra's bizarre music video from a couple of years back. The new Netflix series does not look like a hot mess, however)
Some fans, though they're glad that she's in a better place, worry that Kendra is experiencing the calm before the storm.
It's not uncommon for people to feel visceral relief upon signing divorce papers, only to learn that it's just a brief intermission of peace before the divorce turns sour.
Let us all hope, for their sakes and for the sakes of their children, that Kendra and Hank can keep things amicable even as they begin to decide things like custody arrangements and division of property.
Together or apart, parents should always put the well-being of their children first.

It's been quite a roller coaster 24 hours for Khloe Kardashian.
Last night, several media outlets reported that Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe on multiple occasions over the past six months.
Khloe is currently pregnant with her first child, and TMZ reported moments ago that she's experiencing contractions and is now headed to a Cleveland hospital to give birth.
The outlet reports that Khloe's due date is sometime in late April, but her family and medical team believe the baby could arrive as early as this afternoon.
TMZ is also confirming that Khloe's mother and sisters are currently headed to Cleveland in preparation for the birth.
Kris Jenner has reportedly been shuttling back and forth between Cleveland and Los Angeles all week in order to keep tabs on Khloe's progress.
As for Tristan, he's scheduled to help his team close out their regular season at home against the New York Knicks tonight.
We're guessing he'll skip the game, however, if Khloe goes into labor.
We're also guessing the Kards aren't too thrilled about the fact that Khloe relocated to Cleveland for Tristan.
Sources say the entire family is outraged over the allegations against Tristan, particularly the rumors that Thompson impregnated one of his mistresses.
"They are heartbroken for Khloé. They didn't realize how deceptive Tristan could really be," a source tells People.
Of course, Khloe is a Kardashian, which means many on social media are skeptical about the timing of all this high drama.
"Soooooo that video of Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe is from October but it just now comes out while khloe is due to give birth any day and they're shooting another season of KUWTK the devil works hard but not harder than Kris Jenner," one Twitter user joked.
We understand the skepticism, but we doubt even Kris and company would go so far as to fabricate this sad situation.
Drama might be their bread and butter, but this is the stuff of soap operas.
We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

We're just weeks away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and you know what that means!
Yes, the internet is currently overrun with bonkers rumors about the couple melting down in spectacular fashion!
In the past month, the tabloids have really outdone themselves in terms of imagining totally implausible scenarios that might lead Harry and Meg to call the whole thing off at the last second.
They've claimed nude photos of Markle are making their way around social media and bringing tremendous shame to the royal family.
They've reported that Harry was caught cheating on Meghan with one of his most high-profile exes (the identity of the mistress varies from one publication to the next).
They've even published headlines insisting that Meghan's sexts to Harry had been intercepted by a website with ties to ISIS.
Like we said, you almost have to respect the shamelessness that's going on here.
With all that nonsense floating around the blogosphere, it's sort of amazing that it's taken some desperate BS artist this long to apply one of the most classic wedding scandal scenarios to Harry and Meghan's big day, but we knew someone would get there eventually:
Yes, Woman's Day Australia is reporting that Meghan is coming down with a serious case of cold feet.
A "palace insider" tells the magazine that Markle is now "questioning whether she can cope with the constant scrutiny that comes with her new life as a royal."
According to the tabloid, the first sign of trouble came when Meg declined to join the rest of the royal family for church services on Easter Sunday.
"It's a sure sign Meghan needed some time out," the source claims.
The insider adds that Harry is now "worried Meghan will struggle with royal life" and is "in a panic of his own as he worries about his bride."
"He's fiercely protective of Meghan and just wants the haters to back off and stop trying to ruin her reputation and their wedding day," says another source.
Not surprisingly, a royal rep has dismissed the reports as "rubbish."
In other words, being a rep for Buckingham Palace is apparently the easiest job in the world.
Just be ready with a British euphemism for "bullsh-t" and you're golden.

We're very sorry that the Gosselin family is back in the news.
Trust us, we wish this were not the case and that you never had to read about Kate or Jon ever again.
But Kate Gosselin has actually signed on to anchor her very own dating show, and she's agreed to a deal with People Magazine to promote said show.
As part of this deal, the publication actually spoke on record to 17-year old twins Mady and Cara, about whom Kate recently said the following when it comes to her love life:
"Now that they're older and talking about dating and how they're all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me.
"They want me to have somebody in my life."
Along these lines, except the exact opposite, Mady and Cara have opened up to People and said some rather harsh things about their dad.
Specifically, they claim that Jon Gosselin is NOT a person who is currently in their life.
"He makes it seem like we're being kept from him, which is insane," Mady says, adding:
"He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don't want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen."
Wow, huh? Ouch!
Back in November, we reported that Jon was going to fight for custody of his children.
But take one look at his Instagram page and you may not even realize he has children, considering the entire thing is practically filled with nothing but posters such as the one above.
That is, ads for Jon's appearances at various clubs that have hired him as a DJ for some reason.
"He doesn't even know us," Mady also tells People. "How can he dare to talk about us?
This is the harshest and most straightforward we've ever heard any Gosselin kids speak about their father.
Jon did wish his twins a happy 17th birthday six months ago, but that was the last reference he made to them on social media.
Kate and Jon rose to fame well over a decade ago as the leads of Jon & Kate Plus 8.
They surprised absolutely no one who watched their painful marriage on television when they announced their separation in 2009.
Since then, Jon has focused on his DJing career, while battling Kate for custody of the twins and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel, who turn 14 next month.
However, in August of 2016, Mady and Cara said that they weren't speaking to their dad, who had given interviews to some media outlets about his strained relationship with his daughters.
Of course, Kate has also discussed her kids often in public.
This right here is a photo of them on the set of The View.
But one big difference, it seems, is that Kate hasn't bad-mouthed her sons or daughters.
She hasn't blamed them for any kind of poor relationship and she has seemingly always asked for their permission any time they were placed in the spotlight.
Don't get us wrong, Kate Gosselin sucks a whole lot, too.
We aren't very big fans of her and we'd rather watch Chrisley Knows Best over her ridiculous upcoming dating show
But she does seem to at least know the names of all her children.
We're not entirely sure the same thing can be said of Jon.

We've all heard of the terrifying incident in which David Eason pulled a knife and began stabbing balloons at the Teen Mom 2 Reunion.
Since then, Jenelle has tried to make excuses for his alarming behavior, like she always does.
Well, Teen Mom 2 viewers will finally get to see the footage for themselves. And Jenelle is going to be pissed.
The good folks over at The Ashley have a source that reveals that Teen Mom 2 will show David Eason's balloon incident.
"[The show's producers] have been planning to show David's rampage since it happened."
Naturally. Reality shows are fueled by drama and explosive moments.
"Normally, it would be included in the regular Reunion special."
This was a special case, however.
"But the drama [from the Reunion taping] was just so good that they basically said, 'We're saving this for the show!'"
The source even dishes on exactly what viewers can look forward to seeing.
"Viewers will get to see him get tangled in the balloons and then the cameras kind of scramble to zoom in on where the commotion is coming from."
This, as those familiar with reports of the incident know, is where David's knife comes into play.
"And then they show David stabbing the balloons."
As fans can imagine, the sight and sound of a large man angrily stabbing a bunch of balloons did not go unnoticed by the other stars.
So the footage will reportedly also show them freaking out.
"It shows just how weird that whole situation actually was."
We can also expect to see Jenelle, as usual, making excuses for her husband's deeply alarming behavior to her costars.
A while back, Leah Messer appeared on Kailyn Lowry's podcast to talk about the infamous Balloon Massacre.
And they talked about more than just what happened after he pulled out a knife.
"I don't even remember if [David was mad] because they were not serving any more alcohol."
Fans may remember that David Eason griped about there not being any beer.
"But we were there for work!"
If you're not sure how much is appropriate to drink at a work function, just ask someone. Or don't drink at all!
"I mean, you can have a few drinks socially but, it's not that appropriate."
Kail and Leah then agree that they would not allow their children near David Eason. Which shouldn't be too difficult, since Eason has been fired.
The Ashley's source goes on to to describe what else we can look forward to seeing.
"They show security searching him the next day at the studio because of the knife incident the night before."
Added security makes sense when you're dealing with someone who clearly loves weapons.
The source says that this should solidify the incident in the minds of fans and viewers.
"It really happened, and everyone saw it so there's no denying it happened."
And the source points out that the footage is really fair game.
"If someone does something on-set, in front of cameras, they can't really get upset if it ends up on the show."
That makes sense. That's how reality television works.
The source also reveals that apparently producers have not tipped off Jenelle that the footage will air.
And it sounds like they don't plan on pulling the footage, even if Jenelle pitches a fit. Again.
Jenelle always seems eager to bend over backwards to explain away David's abhorrent behavior and to defend him, even though he appears to be the worst man she's ever been with.
(Which is almost impressive, considering his competition for that title)
After fans and viewers and Jenelle herself all see what the camera will reveal about David Eason, will it become harder for her to lie to fans -- and herself -- about the man she's married?
Or will MTV change its mind before the episode airs, and bury the footage?

It's only been a month since the world learned that Josiah Duggar is engaged to Lauren Swanson, but it looks like the young couple is already tossing aside some of his family's most strictly-enforced rules.
In fact, if you're one of the more devout Duggar fans, you may want to sit down for this one...
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you - Lauren's shins:
Yes, that outfit might not seem particularly revealing, but by Duggar standards, it's downright risqué.
The famous Duggar dress code dictates that all unmarried women must wear skirts with hems that fall safely below their knees.
In the interest of playing it safe, Josiah's sisters typically wore floor-length skirts and dresses.
As you can see from the photo below, Lauren has mostly followed suit.
But on her recent trip to San Antonio with Josiah and family, Lauren favored a slightly less conservative look:
"Enjoyed a beautiful evening in San Antonio on the river walk, and checking out the Alamo with Lauren and the family!" Josiah captioned the photo.
Typically, Duggar kids aren't allowed to have social media profiles until after they're engaged, but a special exception has been made for Josiah due to the fact that this is not his first relationship.
Josiah courted Marjorie Jackson back in 2015, but the romance ended abruptly and without explanation.
Fans still aren't sure what led the couple to call it quits, but the breakup helped bolster Josiah's reputation as being much more progressive than his siblings and taking an almost-modern view of dating and relationships.
The fact that his girlfriend feels comfortable wearing playing fast and loose with the Duggar dress code has only cemented that view of the 21-year-old reality star:
"Pls let her wear whatever she wants! You seem to be the cool Duggar!" commented one fan on Josiah's photo.
"A woman should be able to express her self anyway she want! There is nothing wrong with a good pair of jeans! Break free from this ridiculousness!"
As In Touch Weekly points out, planning for Josiah and Lauren's wedding is already underway, and it seems Si can't wait for the big day.
On a recent outing, he and Lauren were chaperoned by his younger brother Jason.
Josiah posted a pic of the excursion with a caption reading, "Third wheel problems."
We guess Jinger's not the only rebel in the family!

Now that Tristan Thompson has been caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian, everyone has an opinion to share.
But rather than roasting Tristan or claiming that Khloe deserves this, one of Khloe's former enemies is reaching out with a message of compassion.
Amber Rose sounds heartbroken fro Khloe.
Amber's post begins:
"I know we've had our differences in the past."
Yeah, Amber and Khloe have had their share of beefs.
"But my heart is broken for you sis SMH."
In case you're unfamiliar, SMH generally means "smacking my head," as one might to express frustration with another's behavior. For example, Tristan Thompson's foolishness.
Amber's post continues:
"No one deserves to feel that pain especially during such a sensitive time."
Amber concludes her beautiful, compassionate message by writing:
"God bless you and your baby."
Khloe is expected to give birth any day now.
In fact, some have suspected that Khloe has already given birth.
Tremendous stress -- like suddenly becoming embroiled in a cheating scandal because your baby daddy can't seem to reign in his own penis -- can be much worse during pregnancy.
It's probably safe to say that everyone is hoping that Khloe and her baby remain in good health.
We should be clear that Amber Rose does not actually say Khloe's name at any point during her message.
Given the circumstances, however, it seems abundantly clear to just about everyone that Amber is referring to Khloe.
It's kind of like how, these days, if you see someone tweet about being furious at "him" or "what he's done now," just about everyone can infer that they're talking about Donald Trump.
Similarly, when someone so closely linked with the Kardashians -- as Amber has been, often to her chagrin -- posts a message like this in the wake of Tristan Thompson's devastating cheating scandal, it seems clear that her message is intended for Khloe.
Though, given their less-than-amicable history, it's entirely conceivable that Amber does not actually have Khloe's phone number.
This cheating scandal began when The Daily Mail published a video that appeared to show Tristan Thompson with a young woman in a bar.
The woman, who was not Khloe, appeared to be making out with Tristan.
On its own, that might have been explained away. In fact, one report seems to suggest that Khloe is totally in denial about the whole thing.
But then came TMZ's video of Tristan seeming to be fooling around with two women in a hookah lounge back in October, after the public had already learned about her pregnancy.
And The Shade Room chimed in with a video that appears to show Tristan with the same girl from the bar, possibly headed to a room together.
Now, the alleged identities are being revealed of Tristan's mistresses.
While Lani Blair has not chosen to make a public statement just yet, not everyone is being so tightlipped.
Finally, a woman's final message to her Instagram followers before deleting her account was to claim that Tristan Thompson had impregnated her, too.
Sympathetic messages like Amber Rose's are definitely kind.
But it sounds like Khloe's going to need many more kind words in the future.
This story is far from over.

Over the years, Mariah Carey has been the source of many rumors, related both to her personality and her lifestyle in general.
Did you hear, for example, that she may have been involved in a Satanic sex cult as a child?
In the latest issue of People Magazine, however, the legendary artist separates at least one fact from whatever fiction may or may not be out there about her.
Carey admits that she has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
This illness can mean many things to the individual who is afflicted with it, but it is most generally associated with episodes of mood swings, ranging from depressive lows to manic highs.
Carey tells People Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle that she was actually diagnosed way back in 2001 - when she was hospitalized for a physical and mental breakdown - but "didn't want to believe it" at the time.
Mariah then expounded:
"Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me.
"It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn't do that anymore.
"I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love: writing songs and making music."
Carey, of course, has always been known for having an eccentric personality.
She's been considered high-maintenance and very demanding.
The word diva has often been thrown around across the Internet.
It's also worth noting that Carey is one successful solo artist of all time.
She has a whopping 18 number-one hits to her name and more than 200 million records sold.
And yet she has been suffering from this disorder for nearly two decades, in relative silence, at least when it comes to public perception.
The singer says she's currently in therapy and taking medication for bipolar II disorder, which involves periods of depression as well as hypomania.
People writes that this is "less severe than the mania associated with bipolar I disorder, but can still cause irritability, sleeplessness and hyperactivity."
Mariah is also in the studio these days, working on an album that she hopes to release toward the end of 2018.
"For a long time I thought I had a severe sleep disorder," she explains.
"But it wasn't normal insomnia and I wasn't lying awake counting sheep.
"I was working and working and working … I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down.
"It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania. Eventually I would just hit a wall. I guess my depressive episodes were characterized by having very low energy.
"I would feel so lonely and sad - even guilty that I wasn't doing what I needed to be doing for my career."
Why has she come forward now, after all this time?
"I'm just in a really good place right now, where I'm comfortable discussing my struggles with bipolar II disorder. I'm hopeful we can get to a place where the stigma is lifted from people going through anything alone. It can be incredibly isolating.
"It does not have to define you and I refuse to allow it to define me or control me."
For more on Mariah Carey and her battle with bipolar disorder, dealing with fame and raising twins, pick up the latest issue of People.
It goes on sale Friday, April 13.
