MTV 'Teen Mom'

Allegedly Choked

by Her Mother

1/18/2010 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

MTV 'Teen Mom' Allegedly Choked by Her MotherOne of the young mothers from the MTV reality show "Teen Mom" was allegedly choked and then hit by her 54-year-old mom this weekend -- and mom is now facing domestic violence charges.

The Council Bluffs Police Department in Iowa tells TMZ Debra Danielson -- the mother of 18-year-old "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham -- was arrested at around 1 PM on Saturday for suspicion of domestic abuse/serious assault.

According to cops, Farrah and Debra started arguing over childcare issues when Debra allegedly threw an MTV shirt at her daughter ... which landed "on or near" Farrah's baby, who started crying.

That's when Farrah claims she went off on her mother -- who then grabbed Farrah by the throat. Farrah told cops she pushed her mother's hand away from her throat, causing her mother to strike her on the right side of her head and mouth.

In the report, officers say they observed multiple cuts on the right side of Farrah's lips.

The story was first reported by the The Daily Nonpareil.

Oh dear Farrah. You will regret this terribly one day. There are moments in life you cannot take back and you find out this is one of them.

Let's sell T-Shirts that say, "I Slapped Farrah from Teen Mom" a la Ouiser Boudreaux from Steel Magnolias! I was afraid people would be defending Farrah but I was almost giddy reading these comments! Glad I'm not the only one who feels she got what was coming to her! When she cussed out her stepfather, that was the last straw...I'd have kicked her @ss then!!

Farrah is the way that she is because of her parents raise her that way. Chances are they spoiled her a lot. Farrah may have deserved to be disciplined, but her parents need to be as well. My only thought is, what about the baby?

Kudos to Wil for challenging the "black guy" comment. Thank you..I don't think Farrah is respectful to her mom and dad at all and it saddens me that such a beautiful child is not getting the attention that she should. But I don't see how Farrah is being labeled a "whore" or "slut" for going on dates. She's not kissing or sleeping with these men on film, unless some of you know something that the clips aren't showing. Violence of any kind isn't acceptable. I hope this didn't happen in front of the baby. Life will teach Farrah a better lesson than her parents can.

LET'S ALL NOT FORGET HOW DISRESPECTUL SHE IS TO HER FATHER AS WELL. SHE REFERS TO BOTH PARENTS BY THEIR NAMES. SHE IS A SPOILED CONCEITED HOT MESS, AND SHOULD'VE BEEN SLAPPED IN MANY OF THE EPISODES. I DO NOT LIKE HER OR AMBER!!!!!

Watched the show with her and I can see why the mother attacked her. She's a terrible daughter.

Alot of the Blame IS on the parents. My sister's knew very early on, when the time came that my mother would put them on birth control so they would't ruin their lives. My sisters are 25 and 28, never been pregnant. Seems like young girls get pregnant because parents don't want to talk about it. SUCK IT UP PARENTS AND PUT YOUR GIRLS ON THE PILL! THEY WILL HAVE SEX WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION.

The fact is, A BABY IS THE LEAST OF YOUR WORRIES. If you don't talk to your children about sex they could end up with HIV.

HIV is the main reason I get so pissed at Celebs who bed hop, Kate Hudson and Paris alone have had more men inside them than a porn star. How about the Khloe Kardashian, she had a pregnancy scare, which means they were having unprotected sex. Someone needs to tell these Celebs it takes 6 MONTHS for HIV antibodies to show up. She hasn't even been married six months, I doubt they have even been together six months. Marriage doesn't keep HIV away.

This girl's mother is an awful example of motherhood, and isn't any kind of a role model for Farrah to follow. She has taught her to be disrespectful. There is no love in that house. I am a mother of 3 adult daughters. We would never treat each other with the level of disrespect that they have for each other. Ever since Debra hit her in the car when she was pregnant, I knew this day was coming. What a great big disfunctional family this is. Hopefully they will get some help so they don't pass it on to the baby and continue the cycle.

I watch the show and I am not at all surprised. Although Farrah should be home with her baby and not out every other night, I still think her mother shouldn't have hit her. She's 18! You hit 6 year olds for dicipline! The show already showed her mother hit her. This family needs to get things together for baby Sophia!

Are any of you commenters actual mothers. I would hope not because if I were your child I would be disgusted by all of the negative things you have said. All of you who encourage CHOKING! as a form of punishment need to re-evaluate your lives. You're no better than Farrah if you think that's going to solve anything. Now, I'm not saying Farrah is perfect; I just thing there are better ways to handle a situation than to get violent and attempt to hurt someone..especially your own child.

c'mon now    

First of all the mom and dad of Farrah are horrible parents. Her mom hit once on the first season when they were driving in the car. REMEMBER??? And then Farrah tried to get on birth control so she WOULDN'T get pregnant again and her dad didn't want her too. Maybe if she would've been on it in the first place, these situations of hitting and choking wouldn't be happening.
