I’ve done my best to ignore both this show and this news story, but I can’t anymore. Yo, one of the moms from that show Teen Mom is in jail! … Yes, only one of them. Can you believe it?
Amber Portwood, who looks like an orange Pound Puppy, was jailed this morning after being charged with three class D felonies, two for domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent (that would be her baby). The charges sprung from an on-camera fight between Amber and her former fiance and baby daddy, Gary Shirley, who she claims to be getting along with these days.
Because of an Indiana law stating that anyone charged with domestic violence is required to spend at least 24 hours in jail regardless of whether or not bail has been posted, Amber is currently being held. Should everything go according to plan, Amber will be back out by later this evening.
As I said, I don’t know anything about this show, so I’m going to have to rely on you guys to guide me: Is Amber a misunderstood teen, in a crappy position, or is this chick just a total menace?
