A star on MTV's 'Teen Mom OG' was taken into custody Friday morning following a battery report.
"Just after 3:00 a.m., on 7.5.2019, officers were called to [address] reference a disturbance".
"Officers spoke to the male victim, who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement", a police spokesperson told the website. In 2010, she was was arrested on three counts of domestic violence after allegedly pushing ex Gary Shirley against a wall, slapping him, and choking him. Police confirmed in a statement to HollywoodLife that, "the case will be turned over to the Indiana Department of Child Services as standard procedure on any case where a child was present during an incident".
Her man: The reality TV star is dating Andrew Glennon with whom she has son James, aged one.
While Amber and Andrew have stayed silent about the incident, Gary Shirley, the former boyfriend of Amber and father of Leah, broke his silence on Twitter.
Portwood recently discussed her mental health conditions on her MTV show, where she admitted to often lashing out at her boyfriend and baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.
In December 2011 she was arrested for the Class D felony of possession of a controlled substance and was later charged with violating her probation on her earlier domestic-violence charges. She chose prison and served 17 months. She also got her GED and said she was high during most Teen Mom episodes and planned to stay sober from that point on. "I just didn't know what it felt like because I'd never experienced that before". "It's complete sabotage when you're called a terrible mom every day", she told co-star Catelynn Baltierra on the show past year.
In 2017, Portwood said on the show she had been re-diagnosed with borderline personality and bipolar disorder.
