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.

It was only a matter of time. TMZ is now reporting that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was arrested today on domestic violence charges and is currently in jail.

If you recall, Amber was charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery back in mid November. According to TMZ, the arrest warrant was officially issued today by her local police department for those charges.

According to the cops, the charges stem from Amber attacking ex-fiance Gary Shirley on three separate occasions between August 2009 and July 2010. Some of the violence was captured on video and shown on the MTV hit show Teen Mom.

Amber was reportedly booked at 4:21 PM EST and has been placed on a “24-hour hold.” Her bail has been at $5,000. Amber faces three years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.

It is also likely that Gary will be awarded temporary custody of their daughter Leah due to this arrest.
