FIRST ON 3: "Teen Mom" Jenelle has to give up court appointed attorney

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- MTV's 'Teen Mom 2' star Jenelle Evans and two other girls who were involved with a fight tape that went viral online last month made their way to the Brunswick County Courthouse Tuesday to face charges stemming from that footage.

Jenelle was surprisingly early for court, showing up before Brittany Truett and Brittany Maggard, the two other girls involved in the fight. All three are charged with assault.

The hearing was brief, as the three talked with the judge about their options. The focus today was attorneys.

Maggard, the girl seen pushing Jenelle into the fight, requested and got a court appointed lawyer.

Truett, the girl fighting Jenelle in the video, already has a hired attorney.

But Jenelle got some bad news. Up until now, she had a court appointed attorney, but the judge says she’s making too much money from all of her media involvement to qualify for one. Dustin Sullivan had been working for Jenelle for free, but now he says she’ll hire him to represent her.

All three of the girls are set to be back in court to face their charges May 24th.
