That took long enough: Amber Portwood, the star of MTV‘s “Teen Mom,” was arrested yesterday for a domestic violence assault on her daughter Leah’s father, Gary Shirley. As you can see from her mug shots, her skin is 90 percent less orange in the clink.Amber was filmed earlier this year by MTV punching and slapping Gary, her on-again-off-again boyfriend. On Monday, prosecutors in Indiana filed felony domestic battery and child neglect charges against the 20-year-old. She faces three class D felonies, including two counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent, because two-year-old Leah was present during the assault. Amber was also charged with one misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. MTV had no comment on Amber’s arrest.
Frankly, I don’t understand why Amber was not arrested earlier for domestic violence. It was on freakin’ MTV for all to see! What took them so long?
Hopefully this knucklehead will get it together before she spirals into total Charlie Sheen-dom.
