Amber Portwood Arrested

Amber has been arrested today. TMZ reports: 
"Teen Mom" Amber Portwood has been thrown back in jail -- this after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest today, TMZ has learned.

It's unclear why the judge issued the warrant -- whether it's related to Amber's most recent alleged probation violations, including a fight Amber got into at a restaurant last month ... or a new one entirely.

Amber is currently being booked at Madison County Jail in Indiana -- where she's now expected to spend the holidays.

She's due to face a judge on January 13."

E! Reports:
"Amber's brother, Shawn Portwood, tells E! News exclusively that his sister missed her most recent probation hearing and, as a result, authorities went to her house.

While there, they went through her purse and found some "old pills" that Amber said were from an earlier prescription. Unfortunately, she could not show proof that she ever had said prescription and was subsequently arrested and put in jail.

The Madison County Sheriff's Department has confirmed to E! News that Amber is indeed in their facility on a "probation violation," adding it "will be up to the courts to decide" how long she stays there.

In other words, she'll very likely spend Christmas away from her family."

Here is what Amber's Brother Shawn Tells E!:

"It's really sad because this will be her second Christmas in jail," said Shawn, referring to last December when Amber surrendered to Indiana police and was booked on felony charges of domestic battery and neglect. "We were really looking forward to seeing her because we didn't see her last year because she was in jail, and now that's not going to happen."

"I just talked to her last week and she sounded so excited," insisted Shawn. "She told me she was so happy with her new boyfriend, that our mom really likes him and that she couldn't wait to introduce him to us."

Luckily Amber's daughter Leah is in Florida enjoying some Disney Vacation fun with her father Gary Shirley. I'm glad that she is away and not witnessing any of this. Good Luck Amber.

UPDATE: I have had a few people say that she is bailed out of jail because she was not on the Housed Inmate List of the Madison County Sheriff's Department the moment she was arrested. The list is now updated and includes her name. Unfortunately.

  1. I just don't understand some people and thier choices. If you have a child that you say you can't live without... why do you keep messing up?

  5. Wishing her the best and agree, it usually does get worse before it gets better.. from personal experience, I understand that. Some day I hope she gets her life straightened out.. not only for Leah but for herself.

  13. she should not be allowed to care for a child if she cant care or handle her own life. nor should be allowed to have her daughter if she cant manage to get the help she needs. im sorry but if you love your daughter you would to whatever it took to be involved and have your rights as a mother back. not keep messing up. i just feel horrible for that baby girl whos growing up without her momma there.

  14. As long as she's trying, that's all that matters. Some of the choices she made may not be the best, but at least she's trying to do better. Nobody's perfect & just because all these girls are on TV people expect them to be 120% perfect. Everyone makes mistakes.

  15. I really feel bad for Leah. Amber needs to get her act together and better herself for Leah! Who cares what everyone thinks that watches her on t.v. Do what she needs to to be a stable mother for that little girl. She is the most important thing. And stop doing dumb bs. I too had to grow up very young after I had my kid and my husband died. It's not easy or fun sometimes but 100% worth it... If anyone do it for leah amber. she deserves your best...

  20. I honestly feel that Amber is trying, but I think she's dealing with medical issues that she needs help with. She really seemed to be a lot happier with her new boyfriend, and it looked like things were looking up for her. We all wish you the best, Amber.Thanks Shawn for trying to let people know the real truth. We get tired of hearing all the rumors going around.

  23. So she has bailed out of jail?

  24. The victim here is Leah. How sad for that little girl. She has seen way too much for a little girl her age. Amber needs long term treatment. The choices she has made no matter what her diagnosis is why she is in jail again! When you keep repeating the same mistakes you choose the same consequences that come from those mistakes> Heads up and support yes but enabling the behavior is not helping. She knew exactly what would happen if she missed a probation hearing. Sad for Leah~

  25. She isn't bailed out of jail. I looked at the housed inmates list and she is on there. I don't know if they removed her for a little while but as of today it's been updated and her name is present.

    She's being housed in the P Day Room block.

  26. I really wish her the best and hope that she can get back on her feet one day. Truth be told I'm glad Gary walked away from her so he won't be held back by her mistakes.

  27. i myself have made many poor choices as a parent. I was involved in an extensive domestic violent with my childrens father, and when emotions are running high, things happen.something i would like to know though, how is it that you still have your child? not trying to be mean, but real talk. All three of my children were just adjudicated to be adopted because i was abused by their father, and they witnessed it. So i mean, u have prioor charges of neglect and battery, how is it that your famiy isnt still involved with the system?

  28. Bottom line is that Amber and Gary both need some Jesus in both there lives to take care and raise that little baby the right way. Stop arguing over petty things that dont matter. Everything happens for a reason. And hopefully they both learn a lesson from this.Everybody makes mistakes and they can become better people because of it.
