Courtland Rogers is behind bars.

Just one day after his divorce from "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans was finalized, Rogers was thrown in the slammer for failing to appear in court on a felony charge.

According to a June 11 report by E! News, Rogers was booked at the Brunswick County Jail in Bolvia, North Carolina at 10:38 a.m. on Wednesday. Bail was set at $150,000 and he is due back in court on July 7.

Prior to being booked, Rogers took some time out to send a message to his many fans on Facebook, telling them he was "on my way to jail."

Rogers was due in court on Monday, June 9, to address a case involving Evans' sister, Ashleigh. Last September, Rogers reportedly harassed Ashleigh on the phone and she pressed charges. However, it is unclear whether or not that is the case which now has Rogers locked up.

Either way, he is reportedly facing several months behind bars.

"They got me please write me p.o. box 9 bolivia nc 28422," he wrote. "I love yall so much plsse watch out for my momma she needs yalls support so bad."

In a statement to E! News, Rogers' ex-wife (as of Tuesday) Evans revealed she wasn't surprised that he is back in jail.

"I knew it would eventually happen again, because he is a constant troublemaker," Evans said. "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."
