A reality television star from the "Teen Mom" series on MTV has recently been arrested. According to reports, Amber Portwood has been charged with felony domestic battery.
Details concerning her arrest, which took place last Friday, have now been released.
“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,” read the statement. “During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child. Officers spoke to Amber Portwood at the scene. She was subsequently arrested for her alleged actions in this incident.”
At this time, reports now state that she has been released from jail. She has a longstanding history with having trouble with authority.
"Portwood has previously served time for domestic violence stemming from a 2010 fight she had with Shirley. The two originally appeared on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom together before splitting," reported PEOPLE.
Portwood also credits the "Teen Mom" show for ruining her life. She says it shows a horrible portrayal of the woman she truly is.
Portwood added, “This show has ruined my name. This show has not shown who I am as a person. They don’t show the funny side of me, they show bad mom, they show all that s—, they show the struggle, they show me crying, they show postpartum. So I go, okay, that’s what’s going on in my life so I guess that’s true. I’m over it.”
She has also been open in the past about her struggle with addiction and mental health issues. Regardless of the circumstances, our prayers for God's mercy go out to her and her family. We pray that the Lord brings her grace and mercy. Let us hear your thoughts on this in the comments section of our Facebook page.
