Amber Portwood Arrest


It’s not easy being Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood. And it’s about to get a lot harder. TMZ reports that Amber has pleaded guilty for her most recent December 19 arrest (she was caught with a bunch of prescription pills that did not belong to her). Amber plead to one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of probation violation. Before you think she will get off Lohan or Paris Hilton style, it turns out the agreement would still require Amber spend up to 5 years in prison.

That’s far, far away from the reality television lifestyle Amber has gotten used to. In order to avoid jail, Amber can instead go to rehab under one condition: if she fails a drug test, she will immediately be sent back to prison. Given her failure at meeting the terms of her previous probation, it’s possible Amber may flunk out of that program as well.

Amber, who’s been having a tough time behind bars and was even put on suicide watch, would do best to consider rehab and stay out of prison. She may even want to re-consider her recent statements that the show that made her a household name, Teen Mom, was “exploiting” her and that she wanted to leave the show. At this point, a new contract with the show would be her best option. I think she could do a spin-off with Dr. Drew, Amber Goes To Rehab.

There’s at least one not totally depressing news piece about Amber this week, Starcasm reports she’s not getting evicted of the house she doesn’t live in, because she’s in jail. Funny how that one worked out. Another hearing will be scheduled to determine how much money Amber owes her former landlord.

Amber’s plea bargain for her drug possession charges will go before a judge on February 6.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK AMBER SHOULD GO TO REHAB? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL MAKE IT? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT HER STATEMENTS THAT SHE WANTS TO QUIT THE SHOW?


Amber Portwood is having one heckuva year! In the latest drama to plague the Teen Mom star she is back in an Indiana jail after numerous probation violations. Oh dear…

Amber was issued an arrest warrant yesterday for an unknown issue, although it is suspected her arrest is related to failure to comply with the terms of her probation — including staying sober in public. TMZ is reporting that pending a judge’s assessment Amber could land up to two-years in jail for the violations!

Amber’s brother tells E! Online that after his sister missed her most recent probation hearing, authorities went to her house. During the visit, cops went through Amber’s purse and discovered some “old pills” that Amber could not show proof of prescription for. She was then arrested and put in jail.

Following the warrant Amber was booked in Madison County Jail in Indiana, where she is expected to stay through the holidays unless she can post bail. Luckily her salary from MTV should be sufficient! Amber is scheduled to appear in front of a judge, January 13. Her booking photo is below.

This is a disappointing turn of events for Amber who recently admitted to suffering from and receiving treatment for bi-polar disorder and claimed things are looking up for her. Hopefully, Amber will be able to straighten her life out for the sake of Leah.

In other Teen Mom news it’s unfortunately nothing positive. Star Magazine is reporting that Jenelle Evans has no desire to regain full custody of her two-year-old son, Jace. Despite putting some of her legal problems behind her and rebuilding her life, a friend tells the magazine that she believes Jenelle is fine with her mother Barbara Evans retaining at least partial custody and that Jenelle may never be a full-time mom! “I don’t think Jenelle will ever get full custody of Jace. I don’t even think it hurts her,” the family friend reveals.

“Years down the road, when Jenelle might have her life together, it’ll be weird for them to just start living on their own. It’s sad because he’s so happy when he’s with her,” the friend continued, adding that Jenelle is “great with Jace.”

Apparently part of the problem for Jenelle is the Teen Mom 2 star, who signed over custody to her mother following a tumultuous year which included an arrest and a stint in rehab, has gone boy-crazy since her mother stepped in. “Jenelle is obsessed with male attention,” the source discloses “She wants whatever she can get.” #priorities

“It’s not Jace’s fault he was born to Jenelle,” the source — who believes Jace is safer with Barabara — continues, “Barbara didn’t do this for Jenelle; she did it for Jace.” Hopefully Jenelle will realize the importance of motherhood and consider how much her son needs her.

ARE YOU SURPRISED AMBER WAS ARRESTED? DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE? SHOULD JENELLE BE MORE CONCERNED WITH GETTING HER SON BACK?

More bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood.

As she currently sits in jail following her arrest yesterday for domestic violence (she was put on a 24-hour hold meaning she has to spend at least 24 hours in jail), RadarOnline is now reporting that Amber has been issued a ‘no contact’ order prohibiting her from being with her 2-year-old daughter Leah.

Amber was criminally charged yesterday with two felony counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent. The ‘no contact’ order is due to the neglect charges.

According to Radar, Leah’s father and Amber’s ex Gary Shirley is expected to take care of Leah during this time. Amber was reportedly devastated after being arrested and finding out she was no longer allowed contact with Leah. “She’s scared. But her thoughts were with Leah and she knew Leah was going to be taken care of,” says a source.

As for Gary, he is also reported to be very upset and did not want Amber arrested or prosecuted for hitting him. “He wants her out of jail so he can have his family back. He knows she feels bad about everything that has happened,” adds a source.

No word on when the ‘no contact’ order against Amber will be lifted. Amber is expected to be released today as she only has to post 10% of her $5,000 bail.

UPDATE -  TMZ is reporting Amber has posted bail and has been released.  She has pled not guilty to all the charges. Below is a picture of Amber walking out of a jail with a woman who appears to be her mother according to TMZ.
