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.

i think farrah is a good mom. ya everyone makes mistakes ok she had a baby well she cant take that back if she would have got an abortion then everyone would have had a fit...you cant please everyone. she takes care of her kid and shes young i giver her props. and her mom acts ****ing nuts on the show so how do you think she acts off the show!??? she choked farrah and she needs to get the same treatment as if a guy hit a girl its no diffrent. and even if farrah hit her mom first or ever! she was doing it because of her KID! dah....read it right. keep up the good work farrah and stay strong keep protecting your kid and self. :)

About time! That little bitch was so disrespectful to her parents! I would've knocked her out if she were my daughter, her mom is nice enough to still let her live there when she got knocked up and she treats her like that??!

Everyone that's against Farrah should shut up already. You guys talk about how shes a spoiled bitch and how she needed a beating. And then you call her a whore and a slut. Just because she got pregnant that makes her a whore? You've seen the show. Her mom is crazy. Farrah is a good mom. She is responsible. And if you think shes a wuss just for calling the police, she's not. You should try being in that situation. You people are all talk behind a computer screen. Quit coming on the internet and posting such comments about Farrah unless you actually know her. Its just a TV show. Its not her whole life.

I havent read every comment because theres alot but the ones who say that Farrah deserved what she got is so ridicoulous. Did you ever watch the show?? Every person has a breaking point and Farrahs mom was at times very hateful. The way she acted towards Farrah is abuse. Put yourself in Farrahs shoes. If you had someone who talked badly to you majority of the time, how long could you stand there and not say anything? A person can only be harped on for so long before they reach their breaking point. No one not even a parent should lay a hand on their child. For Farrahs mom to do that in front of her grandaughter is appaling. Farrah at first wasnt such a great mom but I believe she has matured and when her mother threw a shirt that landed near her daughter Sophia, she protected her daughter, that is a good mom. because Farrah had sex and got pregnant doesnt mean she is a slut. I doubt all the people who have said bad things about her abstained from sex when they were younger. How low do you have to be to say such horrible things about a young adult? How would you all feel if someone said those things about you or your daughter?
In regards to Tina who left this comment:
Farrah needed to be slapped, punched, and kicked in the mouth for the way she talks to her parents. If she would have gotten a smackdown a long time ago then she wouldn't be such a bitch. She actually thinks her mom OWES her, for what, she's obviously already had a priveleged life. Where/what happened to her babydaddy? He probably realized this bitch is high maintenance and bailed.

Tina did you ever watch the show? I mean seriously come on now. You obviously talk about something you dont know anything about so maybe you should keep your retched opinions to yourself. It was made clear in the early episodes that Farrahs baby daddy was stalking her, farrahs mother even told her to block his number from her cell phone, so your thoughts that she was too high maint and thats why he probably bailed, is unfounded. He is not in her life because he stalked her and because he died in a car accident along with another passenger, a 3rd passenger was injured. The accident was Sophias fathers fault, he had been drinking while underage. The alcohol that was found at the scene was bought by the mother of the other passenger who died. Yep so because of that alcohol the woman was partly responsible for her own sons death. So why dont you all start to bash that woman and leave Farrah alone.

How the Hell can anyone be on the mom's side? Abuse is just wrong, no matter how you look at it. Sure, Farrah can sometimes be a little overbearing, but not any more than most teens nowadays. Farrah is obviously rebellious because of her psycho controlling, bitchy mother and her dad who doesn't seem to be around much or even care. I hope Farrah meets a great guy someday that loves her and Sophia, so she can get away from her troubled family life. I had a child at an early age myself (not as young as the mothers on the show)but there was a phase I went through when I wanted to still go out with friends and have my social life back to normal. It was a phase, I learned what is important and now I'm 28, my son is 10 and we have the closest relationship and love each other to death. I'm really lucky I had parents who were patient with me. Poor Farrah.

okay here is the scoop farrah doesnt go out that much anymore. she tried to do what her mother but it wasnt enough. her mother kept telling farrah what to do. i have seen the first season she tried to negoiate stuff and her mother still didnt respect it. farrah can go out once in while and have time to herself. her mother wanted her to leave her friend who does that.
i dont condone violence and her mom had no right to hit her in front of grandaughter. unless her mom get anger management which she probably wont this will happen again. so back off. Farrah trying to balance her school, sofia, and carrer. if her mother think farrah goes out alot is bad umm i seen worse.

Farrah deserves to be slapped. If I was her mom I would have kicked her ass out a long time ago. Farrah is such a bitch. I mean the way she treats her parents and just ditches her daughter to hang with her dumb ass friends is just selfish. She really needs to learn a lesson!!!

i'm surprised she didn't do this sooner. out of all the teen moms on the show, farrah is the worst. she treats her mom like a pile of crap. my mother would probably be a nut, too, if i treated her the way farrah treats her mother. domestic violence is never the answer, but Mom was being abused as well. verbally, mentally, emotionally. i feel bad for her.
i hope sophia turns out normal.....

All of you people saying that she deserved her mother doing this are SICK.
No one, no matter how you talk to someone, should they ever put their hands on causing pain on purpose. (also her mother could have killed her if she'd continued choking her)
I always thought that there was something wrong with her mom i the episode of 16 and pregnant when they are going to get a care or something and she shoves her.. oh wait maybe that was on Teen Mom. Oh well either way she shoved her.. crazy lady.
Hope she goes to jail.. and stays there for a while.

LOLA    

FARRAH IS A SPOILED LITTLE TWIT. SHE HAS A BAD ATTITUDE AND BELIEVES THAT SHE LIVES IN THIS IMAGINARY LIFE OF DENIAL. SHE IS RUDE AND ABNOXIOUS. HER ATTITUDE TOWARDS HER MOM AND DAD, DOES SUCK. SHE DESERVED A KICK IN THE ASS. AND BELIEVE ME...IF DEBRA THREW THE SHIRT AT FARRAH, I CAN GUARANTEE THAT HER INTENTION WAS FAR FROM IT LANDING ON SOFIA. GROW UP FARRAH, U HAVE A GOOD MOM AND U NEED TO REALIZE AND RESPECT. IF NOT...GET THE FK OUT!
