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.
