Amber Portwood from Teen Mom was arrested and jailed early on the morning of July 5 on felony charges of domestic battery.
She was previously arrested in 2010 on domestic violence charges after having a fight with her first baby daddy, Gary Shirley, but this time around the victim was her current boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
Radar Online reported that Andrew was holding their one-year-old son when the incident occurred.
“Officers spoke to the male victim, who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement,” a spokesperson for the police told the outlet. “During wich time [Amber Portwood]…assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child.”
The police told Radar that the case will be turned over to the Indiana Department of Child services “as standard procedure” in cases that involve children.
Amber has since been released from jail. Her court date was originally scheduled for this morning, but was moved to Wednesday, July 10. She was released on bail, but it was not her family that helped her.
A spokesperson for the county jail in Indiana told Radar Online that Amber was released in the afternoon on July 6. She was released on a $2,000 bond, and a woman who was unrelated to the Teen Mom star posted bail.
Radar also released the 911 report from the incident.
Andrew was the one to alert authorities of the altercation, texting them to claim that his and his son’s life were in danger. The dispatcher alerted the Indianapolis police department, which resulted in the arrest of Amber.
