North Carolina police tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively they won’t be investigating Jenelle for shoving her mom!

The drama has already started on Teen Mom 2! On the Jan. 11 series premiere, 19-year-old Jenelle Evans got into a fight with her mom Barbara Evans, 57. Caught on tape and aired on national television, Jenelle shoved her mom out of her bedroom after a huge argument. But unlike the case of Teen Mom Amber Portwood, who was arrested for assaulting ex-fiancé Gary Shirley, Jenelle doesn’t have to worry about getting in trouble with the law for her abusive behavior!

Despite the battle being caught on film, an officer for the Oak Island Police Department, where the incident took place, tells HollywoodLife.com that in order to launch an investigation, the victim [Barbara] would have to press charges: “If we were called to the scene and saw it happen we would’ve probably went ahead and made an arrest,” Assistant Chief Greg Jordan explains. “But we weren’t on the scene.”

“In North Carolina, if it’s a misdemeanor [assault], the victim has the right to press charges or take out the warrants themselves,” Jordan continues. “Whoever got pushed would have to file a complaint.”

If Jenelle’s mom is really concerned about the domestic abuse, “she we would probably be recommended to go ahead and take out the warrants herself,” Jordan adds. “She can call us and we’ll go to her.”

So unless Barbara takes action, nothing will happen to Jenelle regarding this situation.

As of now, Jordan tells us the police “will not be investigating.”

This girl needs some serious help. She should not be a mother. It’s sad her baby is going to grow up and relize that her mom is trash. Nobody should assault their mother like that!
