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.

Farrah has no idea how lucky she is to be living in the situation that she is in with her mother helping her raise Sophie. Maci has made so many sacrifices and been through so many struggles taking care of Bentley, but she does what she has to do because it is her job...she is a MOM. Farrah needs to grow up and get her priorities straight. She is a selfish spoiled bitch who doesn’t deserve all of the support that she gets from her mother. When you are 16 and have a baby; you just can't be a kid anymore. I would give anything to see Farrah try to survive even a day in Maci's shoes!

Leave farrah alone it's not her fault she is like that it's debra 's and Micheal fault she act and talks to her parents like that because they let her talk to them them so yea debra deserves to go to jail because she can't mad all the sudden when most likely she been talking to her mother and her father like that for most of her life .And another debra started it because she threw the shirt at her grand daughter like who does I know she was unexecpted but still that still her grand daughter plus Sohphia is such a cutie so send debra's ass to jail for a year.

Farrah is a little brat on the show but no one deserves to be abused like that. The father of farrah got in a car axident because he was drunk and driving with his friends then after he died farrah found out she was pregnant and she went on MTV to do teen mom. Im 11 years old and i watch teen mom all the time!!!!!!!!

Farrah is a tough little girl to be going through so much in her life. I mean her parents got diforsed she had a babby and she got abused. I hope her mother learns a lesson while she's in there lets hope the lesson is to keep your hands and your language to your self. I love watching teen mom with Maci, Amber,Farrah and Catelyn.

Well 1st of all the mom should of never been throwing anything around or argueing while the baby was in the room. And about the bby's dad he couldnt be involved at this point even if he wanted to because he passed away in dec of 09 in a car accident.(Dumb PPL do your research before you speak !!!)
