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 come on you people don't know what your talking about! Farrah's mom is nuts....no matter how disrespectful your children are, you should never hit them. It sets an example for your child that it is okay to be violent when angry and that can get your kids into trouble in their future relationships and with their future kids. Farrah's mom deserves to go to jail...she seems like she is heartless and only cares about herself. Farrah's bf died in a car crash....shes been through enough she shouldn't have to get smacked around by her un-feeling mother.

wow farrah is a sweet girl and like any teen they don't like to hear **** talking from their own parents when they should support her. She is legal now and not a little girl so you guys need to have some respect for her and know that her mom is obviously abusive and doesn't know how to take situations that well and just lashes out on her.

FARRAH ONLY TALKS THAT WAY TO HER PARENTS BECAUSE THEY TAUGHT HER TO DO THAT IF YOUR PARENTS WOULDNT ALLOW YOU TO TALK TO THE FATHER OF YOUR CHILD OR EVEN TELL HIM THAT YOU ARE PREGNENT YOU WOULD BE ANGRY TOO. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE HE DIED SOPHIA WILL NEVER MEET HER FATHER BECUASE OF FARRAHS MOTHER I DONT BLAME FARRAH FOR GOING OFF ON HER MOTHER EITHER IF MY MOTHER THREW SOMETHING AT ME AND IT HIT MY BABY I WOULD FREAK OUT EVEN IF IT WAS JUST A SHIRT THAT IS NOT COOL

I watched the show last season and Farrah was a self centered brat. But this season we learn that she was in love with the father of her baby but he died in a crash. Didn't he have parents who might want to know about Sofia. I know I would love to help out if it were my son's baby. What's the story?

Farrah drives me crazy the way she talks to her parents...Im spoiled too and would never speak that way juss becuz what they do for me. She needed her ass beat (abuse my ass!!!), her mother doesnt need to be disrespected by her own child. Whoever said she was a good mom are you effin serious?! lol. Clearly you dont watch the show.

ok first of all all of u dissing farrah needs to put a cork in it.... No child needs to be hit or choked in anyway, by that way anyway, an for everyones information her baby daddy died in a car accident, you all are ignorant bitches who prob have nothin to to with theretime besides be haters.... at least farrah is taking care of her daughter, i have alot of respect for her, so what she may have said somethings she shouldnt,but we all have done that at sum point in our life.... all u bitchs are haters who need to grow up an stop being immature u have no idea whats shes going through an if u did u wouldnt rag on her...

Farrah mom is a control freak. She has to let farrah make her own mistake, amd that was not the first time she hit farrah during the show, she hit her in the car one time during the first season, now I am a firm believer of discipline, but after a while u have to let theem find their own way. I think it's good for farrah to make the decision to move out on her own and be a parent. I know what it is to have someone try to tell u what to do what their child. Now she get to make responsible decision and raise the child they way she want.

It's not a question of whether or not Farrah is a disrespectful brat. That's a loaded issue. There are times when it is clear that she is a brat, and times when it's clear that her parents are being ridiculous (ex: birth control does not a slut make, it prevents more Sophia's).
Her mother had no right to choke or cause serious physical harm to her. It's not legal, it's not socially acceptable, and the consequences that the law provides should be expected and enforced. Farrah's actions have nothing (legally) to do with Debra's consequences. And any woman who would attempt to solve a problem by choking her adversary is going to find herself in trouble.
Next time, think, maybe?

All girls have some kind of mess in their life & it doesn't matter how you are raised. Kids are going to turn out how they want. I was beat as a child & I got pregnant by 16, but I still showed respect for my parents at all times. My opinion is Farrah was to disrespectful of her mother. Debra was always taking care of Sophia on the show , but they only show what they want you to see. What is interesting to them. On another note if you don't know about the father of Sophia ... he passed away about a year & a half ago or so from a car accident. He was never told b/c of Debra. So control freak is right! He had every right to know & if he did know maybe the accident would of never happened. I speak from experience!!!!!

I think Farrah is doing alot better on her own,working,and taking care of Sophia by herself!!!!Yes in the begining she was not doing the right things but no one knows exactly what she was dealing with...And whoever said anything abt. Sophias Dad was dead wrong!If you watch the show her dad died.She is doing the best she can.And to her Mom,she did help alot in the begining but these days you hit some1 your child or not,to jail you go.We're not in dino yrs. honey
